I Might Go and Throw My Phone Into The Lake, Yeah
DirectorLucia Vives and Sam Fuentes
We started thinking through testosterone in gel and expanded to elements such as tears; warm beer; holy water; and mercury.
With such, we propose a new constellation of technologies through a narration on vulnerability. Tools to destroy and disappear, but also to expand and nourish.
A homage to the symbolic link in a drop of water and a late-night DM; a soaked jacket coming back home and trying to resuscitate a phone in rice.
The film was created through a back-to-back dialogue between "makers". It’s a research on writing and filming, and simultaneously on affection and subjectivity. It was filmed in Super-8 and 16mm film.
We believe this piece fits this platform because not only it's a reflection on the rewiring of the mind and the body through transmasculinities, but also it's a piece that acts as a moment to breathe, be vulnerable, share and be in peace with uncertainty. It's as much about fear as it's about euphoria.
