Dreaming the Memories of Now

Dreaming of the Memories of Now (2018) is a film that embodies the unexpected tangibility and presence in the image of an ecstatic state of mind. There is a specific type of gaze shared by those who try to see something that rarely shows up. Where revelations are possible, glances are never turned away. Filmed in Oaxaca, in southern Mexico, the video creates a narrative of shared suspicion. It’s a place where mischievous saints, sulky Madonnas, plastic figurines, wooden sculptures come to life, and the divine imprints the visible world.
