ENCANTAMENTO

(Enchantment)

SYNOPSIS

 

One day my mother decided to have my dog neutered.  When she got home after the surgery she was still drugged and didn’t want to sit down.  She also struggled to stand.  I was really amazed by her willingness to overcome what she couldn’t understand and I filmed it.  Months later I was still thinking of those images and I created Encantamento.  I erased the background and I placed her in abandoned houses. These houses are struggling to survive, just as the dog is trying to stand against a strange force pushing her down.
