Amo a las criadas por irreales / Maids (Sofía Castro, Argentina 2018)

Maids 05¿00¿¿ Direction Sofía Castro Choreography Julieta Ferraro Music Los de Seda - Franco Vidal Cinematography Alberto de la Espriella Sound design Mercedes Gaviria Jaramillo Art direction Ángeles Cabezas Luna Production Delfina Cocciardi Inspired by Las Criadas de Monterroso (Monterroso¿s Maids), this humorous short film combining fiction and screendance presents a maid ballerina embodying the voices of two stock radio drama lovers who plan to murder her with their own hands. On a theatrical setting and in one circular travelling shot, objectivity becomes biased as the body struggles to expose all that is incorporeal, and the question arises as to where the limits between mind and expression are. Bio Sofía Castro studied art direction in Buenos Aires. With ¿Maids¿, her first short film, she participated in the Vórtice residence for experimental film in Valparaiso, in the 16th Buenos Aires Screendance Festival Lab, and in Leeds Film Festival, Cinedans, and In/Motion Chicago, among a dozen other international film festivals. She is also the first Argentinian artist to take part in the International Encounters of Videodance in Valencia, and the first screendance curator for Durban¿s International Contemporary Dance Festival. She was awarded a National Grant for the Arts for being FIVER Madrid¿s 2019 featured artist, exploring sign language and choreography.
