Echo chamber - Film - 2014

présenté dans le cadre de l'exposition Panorama 16


This film is based on a very concrete reality, the gradual abandonment of Colombia’s rail network in the second half of the 20th century, reflecting the country’s complex relation to the notion of modernity over the decades. This is seen as a kind of intimate process of deconstruction of the territory’s imaginary cartography, like a reflection of the correlation between a physical landscape and its mental representation. A veritable “forward travelling shot” on the dilapidated rails of a collective memory, it tries to transversally examine the conditions in which the contemporary individual constructs the framework of his or her inner experience.
