The Quilpo Dreams of Waterfalls/El Quilpo Sueña Cataratas. Pablo Mazzolo, Argentina, 2012, 11 min. Super-8
“This shortfilm is a diary of my days at the Quilpo River, and an old comechingones legend. I shot with my Super 8 camera in an area of the Quilpo river in Cordoba, considered to be sacred by the Comechingones aborigins. The Quilpo doesn´t have waterfalls so these were shot quite more to the south, near Mallín Ahogado in Rio Negro. Then I intervened the undeveloped celluloid with light through different kinds of glass and masks. When I developed the film, I reprinted with light different positive frames over a new virgin celluloid. Material creating material. The river feeding itself. The film implodes. I try generating conditions for the unexpected to appear.” P.M.
