Juan David González Monroy at IFFR
Hypnotising slideshow of weathered images presents itself as a relic of an impressive event full of trauma and wonder.
The Masked Monkeys
Satirising ethnographic documentary, OJOBOCA documents the training of masked monkeys whose performances take us to where shadows, dreams and death meet.
A found set of images and sounds with an instruction text make a special type of film. Comfort Stations manifests itself as some sort of psychological test.
The Hot and the Cold
OJOBOCA uses film and slide projectors for anaglpyh 3D images, stroboscopes and music to evoke a magical world in answer to an unhappy history.
