How To Disappear Completely
itinerant simulated graveyard from photogrammetric scans printed on recycled PVC
An excerpt from an (ongoing) ethnographic fiction about the despatialisation of death and the alchemicalisation of body disposal techologies. Summoning the cemetery as a site of social exchange, the film explores cross-cultural death rituals and their interweaving with economy, territory and escathology.
Cast: Natasha Linde Krebs, Pam Virada, Francisca Khamis Giacoman, Andrea González Garrán.
