sssssh – chamber film cycle Cycle
sssssh – chamber film cycle is an exhibition and programmed series of screenings inspired by Maya Deren’s idea of “chamber films”, a cinematographic practice between the private and the public, the amateur and the professional. In the works by the filmmakers in this project, each film is a room, a chamber that captures the intimacy of the gesture, the briefness of a glimpse. This cycle makes Chiquita Room into that place that, as Maya Deren wrote, is home for the heart: «the breath caught in the early morning because the heart’s eye saw something which the hand could never hold…».
On the occasion of the Loop Festival and as part of the City Screen 2022 program, Chiquita Room proposes this cycle and collective exhibition with the participation of Judith Adataberna, Valentina Alvarado Matos, Marie Losier, Callisto Mc Nulty and Bárbara Sánchez Barroso.
Cycle and exhibition curated by Sergi Álvarez Riosalido.
