i_mutating is a militantly mutant product that converges director Juan Molero’s hallucinatory perspective of the world through the interfaces of video and web technology that has now colonised our way of remembering.
Blending in an assemblage of casually recorded materials that range from the home videos to project footage, the film presents a barrage of imageries that captivate as much as they confound the expectations of narrative driven cinema. Juan revisits family events, vacations and sojourns with various personalities including Craig Baldwin, the underground American filmmaker known for his found footage films. By dissecting and merging recorded memories, the film cumulates in the re-construction of one’s identity through life’s encounters that cuts deep into the state of transmission in a nebulous digital age.
i_mutating will be screened with Via Satelite, El Revés del Tiempo and Still Sun. Total duration is 71 minutes.
