Lucia martinez
Mirador
Fiction | dv | color | 14'0'' | Switzerland | 2016
From a mirador, Lucas is observing, touching upon a world growing around himself. The time of an escape from his shelter, he navigates between several gangs. This mysterious character reveals his fragility and innocence within his complex and ambiguous relationships. His passive state is an armor against this youth looking for a reality that Lucas doesn’t want to reach.
Born in 1994, Lucia Martinez is a young Swiss director whose films explore the deferments linked to the passage from childhood to adulthood. Using no professional actors, the fictions created stem from her immediate reality. A sibling, a neighbor, friends become performers for the span of a tale. For Lucia, fiction often blends with reality, creating fictions as minimal as they are essential.
