The Human Mint | Ficção

João Meirinhos & Joana Tem Dias, Portugal


SINOPSE

Quando a quarentena se torna pegajosa. Num tempo em que se inicia um processo de extinção em massa a nível global, a mente de Miguel – cujo passado havia já sido varrido por um conveniente lapso temporal – tenta tropegamente adaptar-se ao Novo Normal. Apesar do isolamento, da extrema direita, da brutalidade policial, das máscaras personalizadas, da paranóia das vacinas e do aquecimento global ainda é permitido mandar vir uma pizza com ananás, mas, é no momento de a engolir que Miguel mais teme pela sua sanidade mentol.


SOBRE O REALIZADOR

Adopting multiple personas (insider / outsider / artist / performer / ethnographer) to validate my understanding of things, I intuitively use photography, text, and film as a way to engage in diverse and often uncomfortable situations, attempting to depict settings from habitually disregarded angles in order to identify and reveal the often unconscious procedures from which political, social and spatial structures emerge. I tell audiovisual tales that stem from my avid interest in discordant/conflictual interactions between peoples and places: How social phenomena inextricably embed themselves into inhabited landscapes? And how environments archive endemic human behaviors, beliefs, and representational systems? How are we perceived by others and how others perceive themselves?
