Soy un ser cuyas raíces // I am a being whose roots
Canada / 12:48 / 2018 / sound / colour / English & Spanish
Soy un ser cuyas raíces // I am a being whose roots reworks Jacques Madvo's Countries & People: Venezuela to explore labour and migration. Taking the final words of the film's voice-over as a starting point, Soy un ser cuyas raíces // I am a being whose roots pairs Madvo's film footage with a text-based conversation with young Venezuelan literature scholar and language teacher Angel Said Dominguez Pinto. Dominguez Pinto relocated to Panama in 2014 to make a living teaching English, Spanish & German in Panama City after Venezuela's economic collapse. Over e-mail, we co-authored a conversational text, exploring migration, labour, exile, and hemispheric relationships.
