Their Shadows in the Streets
I think of this short experimental video as a visual prose about the femicide (female homicides) in Juaréz Chih. MX. I imagine their spirit lingering in the streets alone and haunting. Also how these spirits no longer have borders and wander here in the United States as well. The locations are discarded in the same way this issue has been pushed to the periphery, a history buried in dirt.
This video, initiated in 2008, was made in collaboration with actress Rebecca Rivas from El Paso, TX and producer Marcel Rodriguez-Lopez aka Eureka the Butcher. The process was quick and centered on the spirit of experimentation using practical locations and lighting. The editing process has taken a long time but I'm glad to finish this simple and humble video.
Ni una mås.
