“Fallen Angel” by Elsy Zavarce, at the #MNMF2018

Zavarce created “Fallen Angel” with two videos:

1) Shaking waters: in the backyard of the church of Santa Rosa de Agua District, in her hometown Maracaibo, Venezuela.

2) Waters flowing at the bottom: She shot this on the bottom of the highest waterfall in the world: the Angel Falls in Canaima, Venezuela.

On these videos, the artist proposes a contrast of rhythm, color, and transparency.
