“PADRE. MADRE.”
(English Title: FATHER.MOTHER.)
by CRISTOBAL LEON & JOAQUIN COCIÑA

(Part of the series “The Third World”)

(2011) Short Fiction Film

Between 2010 and 2011, Cristóbal León and Joaquín Cociña created the series of short-films “The Third World”. The series is made up of “Padre.Madre”, “EL Templo” and “El Arca”. The films were shown together as a film installation at Upstream Gallery. These films are the foundational chapters of a new creed. They present a savage procession, moving between sacred and intimate, beautiful and horrific, canonical and arbitrary, sublime and bestial. Every film is the beginning of a myth and also its immediate decadence.
