Les États généraux du film documentaire 2014 Viewing Experiences Cochihza

Khristine Gillard
2013 - Belgique - Couleur - 59'

Cochihza, “she awakens the sleeping one”, one says about the cuicuitzcal swallow, in Nahuatl, the language of the ancestors. Ometepe, the volcano island. A landscape like a sleeping body. Here life is described as a specific rhythm, which man adopts at birth and keeps for all his life. A story of a world unfolds within the gestures of the volcano's community. Daily life, settling down, dreams, memory.
