El balcón/ The balcony

El balcón/ The balcony | Argentina/USA 2012 | HD | 13 min 55s

The balcony is a space of uncertainty between the inner and the outside, an area of contact, of exchange. From there, one sees what happens outside. Buenos Aires appears silent and slow. Text enunciated from an indefinite time details the intimate experience of a desire that is attempting to reveal itself. In the film, this desire aligns itself with images of the city – the remains of small happenings that start over and over, a party, an unknown song, a stranger.
