La Veda

Paco Chanivet

Halfway between film essay and video-souvenir, this story is about family ties. Using images recorded on a cruise taken by his parents, the author invokes a dystopian society where the problems of collective coexistence are solved by an algorithm, and where the prohibition of abortion is compensated by a law that allows parents to prosecute their children if at the age of 30 they have not fulfilled the expectations placed on them. In La Veda, the author's voice-over drifts over his parental figures, stripping them bare with brutal honesty under the gaze of an existential void in the form of a virus and with the sole testimony of a video camera that is treated as if it were a newcomer to the world.
