BODY SNATCHER DE BENJAMIN RAMÍREZ PÉREZ

BODY SNATCHER

The film works with newly-created 16mm film as well as with found footage from Barbara Loden‘s film Wanda (1970), conflating fragments from the film itself and the new material into an abstract narrative:Objects, props and surfaces from the film were recreated, visually isolated and refilmed, taking on a sculptural and artificial notion.

In a kind of vacuum, an abstract and associative narration about emptiness, failure, and identity construction in relation to the body slowly unfolds. A sort of science fiction remake of Wanda emerges - a layer of meaning that lies behind the film‘s plot and surface is imagined and constructed, positioning disparate elements in relation to each other and forging enigmatic connections between them.
