La Confirmación

Bestué Vives

The video shows a luck of initiaticall travel where the main character, a young adult who confronts without pause a series of personal situations. These appear dramatized in a simple and severe way with the rest of the actors and several objects / sculptures created exclusively for the video.

The multiple readings of the methaphores that are raised interrogate the daily life and the exceptional facts as well, and these succeed all along the film. So that, he passes lots of stages and vital contexts that involve growing and overcoming: childhood, family, partnership, sexuality.. even stopping and question oneself, the reach of the own acts and future aspirations, appear like another essential stage.

In short: all those moments that suppose the taking of a decision that will have future implications for one’s life and the ones that surround him. Every one of these scenes have a forward and backward reading; a first one more superficial, as is lived, and the second one more sophisticated, always bathed in this constant sense of humor, ease that makes them confront any issue, no matter how solemn it is.
