Sinopsis / Synopsis:

Through my window it's no longer neither day nor night. While looking through the endless threshold of images, two bodies meet each other. The wasteland, sterile and abandoned, projects the story of a body and how the encounter with God leadead it to death. Perhaps only when the bodies we inhabit are as dead as that landscape, and only then, they shall belong to us. Two voices get closer till they inevitably collide; bodies get projected and night closes in, bringing with it the memory of a dream that may have never existed. There´s no voice, there are no flames and there´s no minuet; upon the land there's only echoes of life, that used to belong to bodies remembered for what they ought to be, left alive.


Biografía / Biography:

Gustavo Salinas D. (september 22nd, 1998) studies the film career at Universidad de la Comunicación in Mexico. Born in the capital (Estado de México), he developed an attraction towards the cinematographic expression as a child when, in his early years, he sat next to his grandmother to witness “something pulled right out of the dreams”. As a film student, Gustavo´s gaze was specially moved by the work of Chantal Akerman and Bruce Baillie; filmmakers whose work would inspire Gustavo´s first feature short-film: Green Flame Minuet (2021)
