The History of Sadness
2014, 08:29 minutes
Found footage short film piece conceived through the articulation of appropriated and recycled film fragments to conform a unified crying scene composed by different women, bodies, faces, ambients and characters. Structuring a beginning, a climax and an ending.
An inquiry into the construction of (self) identity, gender issues, memory, and the process of rewriting/reimagining personal recollections. Assembled as a chapter for an autobiographical long film called An Appropriated Self-Portrait, edited using a fragmentary structure that relies on a linear narrative.
