All Things Were Now Overtaken by Silence (Todo, en fin, el silencio lo ocupaba) (Mexico/Canada, 2009)

All Things Were Now Overtaken by Silence (2009)
August 28, 2011 - 7:00 pm

Directed by Nicolás Pereda

Director Nicolás Pereda’s fascination with the filmmaking process comes to the fore in a work that represents a break from, and a deeper investigation into, the forms and themes of his previous films. In this film within a film, artist and activist Jesusa Rodríguez performs Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz’s poem First I Dream, or rather prepares to perform as a camera crew sets up shots to film her. Along the way, Pereda reveals how moments of stillness, concentration and contemplation shape the act of creation.

Producer/Editor: Nicolás Pereda. Cinematographer: Gerardo Barroso, Lisa Tillinger, Alejandro Coronado. Cast: Jesusa Rodríguez.

HDCam, b/w, 61 min.
