Is there an edge of belief? (mixed media), 2009
Running time: 23min
Produced and directed by Laia Cabrera
Presented in the 2nd edition of the multidisciplinary festival "Jaen en Femenino", Jaen, Spain, 2009
and at the Bienale Internacional de Arte Contemporaneo, Merida, Venezuela,2010

Is there an edge of belief? is a film about the relation, uncommonness and beauty of innocence-belief. Where are the limits of our understanding of the emotions, how do we relate to the others and how do we handle the differences? Through the eyes of a little girl, its the world that we rediscover, the look at adulthood is biased and share its reality with elements of fairy-telling. As the images unravel, the density of the emotion grows, the gravity changes, and we are trapped into a world that the child in us understand, still. There is a woman breathing-singing-crying-fighting, multiple me/us trying to trace our own obsessions, flip books, visual poetry, fictional backgrounds, actors and aerial dancers elapsing their movements, impersonation and caricatures. Everything is allowed to be suggestive and accumulative, more significant than its physical appearance would indicate. So the shards of stories we have put together collide here, reflecting, and evolving like the act of memory itself. All objects and images are more than what first meets the eye, just as the visual imaginary evolves into a whole world of humanity.
