Amalgama

Simfonies de ciutat Spain 22 min World Premiere Documentary

Synopsis

If the city is built by people and these are built by emotions, what spaces in the metropolis are reserved for our most human part? Do these spaces really exist? Amalgamation is the need to return to the origin to reconnect with our center; it is the transition between reason and emotion, the center and the periphery, the limits and the paths to be discovered. It is finding the balance within the extremes; it is that shade between black and white, it is the noise that becomes music, it is a movement when everything is still. It is the contradiction of living between what we are and what is expected of us, and how this contradiction is transformed into an emotional walk towards acceptance.
