“Astro rei” & “Tupianas” by Marcos Bonisson and Khalil Charif for the #MNMF2018
Interlacing elements of time and space, producing an experimental dialogue between images and sounds starting from nature – and through it – this video is oriented by the gesture, using different angles of the same spot (an environmental reserve). “Astro rei” & “Tupianas” were created in collaboration with Khalil Charif.
