La Caracola (The Conch)

The Caracola is a six-minute short film genre video art / video poetry. Written, performed and realized by María Papi.
Conceptual Synopsis.
Videoart that explores the movement of intrinsic relations between two presences that give rise to life: Water and Vulva. Is restored the harmony of the feminine for inquiry about exposing what is hidden. Resonances, transformations, becomings, expansions, frames, junction, fusion. Diverse possibilities of dialogue between body and wáter that build a system of sense production.
The inflection point in this audiovisual, is in the perceptual aspect of the action presented in digital media. The performance art interacts with the aesthetic elements of the digital post-production, the rhythmic movement of the sounds design and the conditional limits of the poetic word.

Director Statement

Debido a que es una oda a la vulva, es una película que se sumerge en un tema de género, de identidad femenina. La mujer está presente, se expone y se expresa en un acto poético de liberación y entrega.
