Synopsis

La cosa vuestra is a hymn to feminist self-defence, a tool of “laughteristance” in relation to gender violence and the violence against animals. La cosa vuestra is a journey towards the most hidden and surreal face of the Sanfermines. What have they become and where are the Fiestas de San Fermín going? It tries to reinvent imaginary through videocollage, tremendismo and futuristic dystopia…

Iconoclastic pharaoh of guilt-cinema, with her usual visual potency and a dream-like apocalypse inspired by a quote from Edgar Allan Poe: “Dreams, those fragments of death. How I hate them!”
