pinturas_bestiaI was on my early teens when I did first experimental shooting using Super8 film. I was really fascinated by the surreal cinema of the thirties. I’ve had never managed to get a cinematic discourse with some consistency yet. It wasn’t until we remained closed for three days in in Carlos Burbano studio shooting performances and interviews. This was my first experience in documentary filmmaking and “Paintings of the Beast” was born. With the rolling stock in U-Matic on hand, the discourse was builded in the editing room in a chaotic manner. Finally the movie took shape and we achieved a 30-minute piece that would be presented in one of the side events of the renowned ARCO Art fair in Madrid.
