SomoS is proud to present the work of Dominican filmmaker Nelson Carlo De Los Santos in a special screening followed by an open discussion about orality and cinema.
It is a given that countries that have not had the possibility of historical representation, need to rely on orality. Part of the first generation since 45 years that can express its intellectuality freely, Nelson Carlo De Los Santos transforms orality into a very personal aesthetic.
In the program, the filmmaker presents and discusses his latest work.
Opening Talk: 20h – followed by screenings
1. You look like a carriage that not even the oxen an stop (Excerpt 5 min)
2. Santa Teresa and other stories. (Excerpt. 7 min)
3. Lullabies (30 min)
