A Subsequent Fulfillment of a Pre-historic Wish




A subsequent fulfillment of a pre-historic wish is a film about a female artist who died in a dubious accident. Connected in time through the layers of rituals, nature, death and fragments of remembrance, a narrator searches for her and a lost artwork and finds nothing more than pieces of a broken memory. The film revolves around Ana Mendieta, deals with the question of identity, spirituality, fleeing and belonging, and relates to current political situations. A connected track, a time loop, between the death of an artist and the question of death and loss within the historical and present politiccs.
