Sobre las nubes
About the Clouds
Four characters inhabit a gray city; they breathe the same air, walk the same streets and, in spite of that, their paths never cross. The second feature from Córdoba filmmaker María Aparicio (The Streets, 2016) builds a personal poetics of the everyday through finding pleasure in the details— the introductory activity of a drama workshop, fragments from short stories read in the intimacy of an empty bookstore or the routine purchase of a bottle of soda carry the subtle density of that which constitutes us as individuals. Its delicate black-and-white photography contributes to a floating, ethereal quality in which, however, the workplace plays a key role. Light in its form but intense in the search for its very own atmosphere, About the Clouds suggests that everyday life consists of a balance between processes that begin and others that end; between mundane pleasures and small defeats.
María Aparicio was born in Córdoba, Argentina, in 1992. She directed the feature The Streets (2016), which participated in many local and international festivals and exhibits, and the short Man in the Rain (2018, 33rd Festival). She currently works on the film Las cosas indefinidas.
