Esta puerta, esta ventana
(This door, this window)
This door, this window. A studio, a dancer and a musician, Alma Söderberg and Nilo Gallego. Between the tuning of an instrument and the warming up of a body, at what stage do movements start striking a chord? Whether fixed or hand-held, the camera gets blurred into oblivion, just like the very notions of a beginning or an end, and only the instant lingers. Rehearsing time cannot be distinguished from performance time, for the film allows such substitutions. Alex Reynolds erases the little breaks in editing, and everything seems captured into one single sequence.
