Morir (nacer) guay

Sarai García Cumplido


Morir (nacer) guay is the first of a series of filmed conversations about gestation and childbirth as a door/channel/status to light and death. During the research process of this film corpus, we talked about the small symbolic violences that a maternal body carries, about the non-identification with the patriarchal model of mother; we talked about discomfort, fear, about a space of power that has to do with the collective.

As Camila Barreau Daly wrote, "life itself has rebelled against the capitalist straitjacket". During a stay at the residence La Segunda Duna, in Olost, we talked with Ona Bros and Jara Rocha about their own experience of gestation and birth of Heura. The forest opened a path of reencounter with a valuable and fluctuating story about the invisible, the political, the material and the fragile of giving birth, about biobodies, biopolitics, witchcraft and birth as ReBelion. This film was the result of a research grant awarded by La Escocesa.
