Tortugas aquáticas / Water Turtles (on two films by Lucrecia Martel)

  • Language:
A video-essay exploring similar moments in two films by Lucrecia Martel (La ciénaga and The Headless Woman), and their use of screens and children's hands. These images are interpreted alongside images drawn by Sergei Eisenstein of foetal hands pressing up against the interior wall of the womb, and shows how these films constitute self-conscious meditations on film's evocation of the pre-natal state.
