In 2020 he has received a Visual Arts residency jointly with Lilián Pallares at Matadero Madrid. He has contributed essays to the forthcoming ‘The Poetics of Poetry Film’, Bristol: Intellect Books, S. Tremlett (ed).

Director Statement

The film is dedicated to the poet’s mother Rocio Campo, who passed away the week after filming. The poem itself was inspired by a conversation Lilián had with her niece Mia.

Our thoughts were very much with Lilián’s mother in hospital in Colombia when we were filming in Almenara, Spain. The Covid-19 restrictions made travel to Colombia out of the question. The filming was very spontaneous, taking advantage of the one windy day during our stay. Mia just happened to call us that day on Messenger and we filmed her talking with Lilián. The music for the video is a prelude by Clara Schumann which I had begun studying this year and seemed to evoke the rolling of the waves and a certain melancholy of the poem.

These serendipitous moments combined with the sentiment in the poem and the shadow of the illness and death of a loved one made this a particularly emotive project to work on.
