SONG OF THE FLIES III – NIGHT
Ana Maria Vallejo
Song of the Flies III – night – Do murderers sleep? The purple color of a dark night, the sound of the marimba with its sweet music is mistaken for fear. The long day of war is over, but the war continues. The film translates the desolation caused by the violence of the Colombian armed conflict through the poetic voice of Maria Mercedes Carranza (1945-2003) and the audiovisual dialogue between 9 Colombian artists. The archival images, the artists’ memories, and the recurring use of animated loops bring to life the landscapes ravaged by violence and construct a polyphony of memory and mourning, a universal song of pain.

(IN) MORAL BOOK: ETHIC TO LOSE THE WAY
Andrea Grain Hayton
After the republishing of the “Moral Book“(Alfonso Reyes, 1952) by the actual Presidency of Mexico, a text without relevance for the current century and with no inclusion of women nor non-masculine groups, a group of women poets made a ludic re-writing of some of its sections as a feminist manifesto, embracing our voices in this patriarchal society. Later, this video poem was made, as an urgent exercise against the violent treatment that the Mexican State has decided to give us, the women as citizens. This is a reunion of visions in Spanish, English and Spanglish.
