Sensemayá by Colectivo Los Ingrávidos (Screening)
Sensemayá is a shamanic composition, an ecstatic dance and ritualistic spell that distills and exudes the kinetic motion of the ancient snake that inhabits our present dislocated times. Shifting from the poetic to the unsettling and the foreboding, Sensemayá contorts and repeats its patterns, pulsating images that feel out of time, encompassing the past, the present and the future.
Colectivo Los Ingrávidos is a Mexican film collective founded in 2012 to dismantle commercial and corporate audio-visual grammar and its embedded ideology. The collective is inspired by the historical avant-gardes and their commitment to using both form and content against alienating realities.
