Under Influence (Experimental film 16mm color film) 2001
Produced and directed by Laia Cabrera.
Best Cinematic Film at the 23rd. Annual Invitational Film Festival, New York.
Experimentations on how light affect the emotional and mental state of the viewer. This piece was shot in 16mmm and was presented in landscapes among other festivals accompanied by a symposium in which the artist was invited to talk. "I wanted to talk about making choices in life - choices that are under some sort of influence and that we must accept as a part of our nature. The main character decides not to get up from bed because "being afraid of deception", she prefers to live her life in her mind. But being in bed is a choice in itself. It is not bad or good, it is just a choice. I wanted to point out that living in a mental state is not necessarily a form of escape. In this case, it is the character personal way of approaching existence." Laia Cabrera
