A LOVE SONG IN SPANISH

France/Panama, 23 min, 2021

Directed by Ana Elena Tejera

Produced by Le Fresnoy - Studio national des arts contemporains

She lives a lonely monotony, her days are a routine of repetitive actions. Then She stops and in the silence She remembers the body of a man stroked by war. She tries to free herself of the memory, but the memory goes through the skin. A biographical performance between the director and her grandmother to confront the domestic dictatorship of their family.
