Documentary Exploration on Framing and the Body
Actor Inmaterial / Neibor Producciones 2023
Una mujer explora las formas de una casa en construcción. Hasta que todos los cuerpos involucrados (el de la mujer, el del camarógrafo, el de la casa y el de la cámara misma) se entremezclan y habitan la imagen. TRIO es una Pieza audiovisual que transita entre el documental, la video-danza y el cine experimental.
A woman explores the forms of a house under construction. Until all the bodies involved (the woman's, the cameraman's, the house's and the camera itself) intermingle and inhabit the image. TRIO is an audiovisual piece that moves between documentary, dance- and experimental cinema.
The documentary exploration TRIO is a collaborative work between cinematographer Oscar Molina and choreographer Brenda I. Steinecke Soto. This project was born out of long conversation about their independent projects related to the sense of house/home understood as rootedness/centre in a globalized world (Oscar Molina) and the body/centre as starting point for a reflection on politics and sprituality in an always changing social and physical context (Brenda I. Steinecke Soto).
During one year and a half Oscar Molina and Brenda I. Steinecke shot in a house under construction which offered a changing environment for the camera framing the architecture and the body exploring the space in terms of habitabliity. TRIO explores the idea of 'framing' as an ordering principle. The documentary translates the process in which 'framing' and 'controling' transforms itself into an 'action' of the scene by including the body of 'the framer/observer' into the movement of the 'observed body'. Dancing as a way of looking into the world, deveiling visual qualities unremarked.
