HUMANO is a three color channel video that intimately portrays the humble and ordinary existence of a indigenous Mapuche family in southern Chile.
In this video piece humans live in and are part of land, which in turn is part of humans. It’s a family portrait as well as a free- form format. And a story where beauty and its frailty, melancholia, and a life for the sake of death are brought into light as a whole.
If the ultimate meaning of this video portrait, almost silent, remains indecipherable, it is probably because the meaning of the historical suffering of the indigenous people in its double dimension – past and upcoming – is indecipherable itself.
HUMANO proposes a real time immersion experience through lengthy stills into living pictures and poetic force.
