“Manos” and “Lacustre” are two films that look at labor as a seed to think about ecological phenomenon, gender, and liquidity. Manos is a social surrealist film is about working class women in Uruguay and Argentina. In a dream-like language, woven by hands, ants, and liquidity, it traces manual labor and horizontal mutual aid among working class women. From the sequences of fisherwomen, manicurists, protestors, glove inspectors, clinicians, and mothers, rises a chorus of care, labor, resistance, struggle, trauma, and collective action. Lacustre (43 mins) is a documentary that developed in the Zapotlán Lake, Jalisco, in which a close observation and inspection we describe the landscape without narratives or formal attachments. Instead, the film directs a view of quotidian life that face the complications of climate change, ecology and industry surrounding the lake. FILMMAKERS IN ATTENDANCE!
