Los huesos

The Bones
Cristóbal León, Joaquín Cociña
Chile 2021
14min
OV w/ EN subtitles

Posing as a restored animation from 1901, this “ritual exorcism” performed by a certain Constanza Nordenflycht soon prophesizes the coming political nightmare of 20th century Chilean history. The faces of key conservative legislators (Diego Portales and Jaime Guzmán) become identifiable amidst the increasingly scary danse macabre of bones, organs, and body parts. Adapting the style of unearthly bricolage familiar from Jan Svankmajer and the Quay brothers, Cristóbal León and Joaquín Cociña strive to literally “undo” their country’s legacy of woe through meticulous work on each and every filmic frame. (Adrian Martin)

This film will be shown as part of the screening SHORT FILM PROGRAMME 3: HUMAN MATERIALS.
