Title of the work: Estacada (Left In the Lurch)
Year of production: 2003
Duration: 9’ 40”
Synopsis: It is about the fact of abandoning someone who is defeated or hurt. A man and a woman appear being tied to a stake, alone, left to their fate, but then they interweave each other and they rescue one another in a fusion which includes copulation or its prefiguration, through a series of fading and superimpositions that produce a nightmare effect of Baconian type. Every image constitutes an authentic picture, full of cared and subtle plastic beauty.
