EL PASADO NO ES UNA EXTRAPOLACIÓN DEL FUTURO

Made by Arturo Bastón for FLUX 2015, FESTIVAL DE VÍDEO D'AUTOR
CENTRE D'ARTS SANTA MÒNICA, Barcelona 



-The symbiosis that Arturo achieved between two films, two genres, two eras, two epic views of life and death, are such that the collage of image and sound loses its seams. At masculinizing female voices he ironizes the surreal effect of bad dubbing and at the same time gender stereotypes in film industry. But behind the apparently nonsensical mixture of eras and spaces (prehispanic scenes, Mexican style drama, background noise of a dystopian future), lies in its hypnotic cadence the eternal return of cinematography lavishness and its mythical themes (sacrifices, revenges, oracles, prodigal sons fighting against exterminating angels...).
Osmotic transmission between imaginaries that dig deep into this substratum of archetypes, disturbing and beautiful-
