El Cadáver Exquisito

user
El Cadáver Exquisito by Sombra There are four elements that make up the foundation of my memories and of my present, that is to say, of me. They gave birth to and laced themselves through all the situations that mold my life. Two of them arrived at the same time, while I was still a child: my mother’s garden and my father’s library. I remember the first one deeply; like a cloudy horizon: a forest of roses, with stems that reached to the sky… and the secon...

Wed Yú

Director: Natalie Adorno.
The word Paez WEDX YÚ means "water fish" and it was the name of the territory of the ancestors of the current shelter in San Andrés de Pisimbalá where is the Archaeological Park of Tierradentro, in the department of Cauca, Colombia. The current descendants of the NASA people are rediscovering their identity and regaining its cultural tradition organizing a meeting of three days. It is a testimony for the recovery of memory and tradition. The meeting is organized by a party host chosen by the community, it is organized around a ritual of harmonization and thanks to Mother Earth. Traditional doctors prepared the remedy of harmonization for the whole community that comes with pleasure. Harmonization for life, peace and coexistence. This is life, not disunity. It is the tradition and anybody could not live without it because a people who do not look to its past is a people that has no clear future. Thus, in this environment that looks to its ancestors, through music, traditional food thanks to the Minga (ancient tradition of community for purposes of social utility.) and the exchange of products and the recovery of a rock, this cultural encounter is made to "recover what eighty years ago was lost.”

SO- it was such a relief to emerge from the LA Film Festival cinemas yesterday and say yes, those films deserved all that buzzing. 'Where Are You Taking Me' took me to Uganda with a sincere observational eye that simply lets the magical moments unfold before you, untouched except by Kimi Takes...
