Watch the trailer
A seemingly ordinary action is recorded in a single take: a mass of potatoes cascades down the steps of the Centro Cultural Néstor Kirchner in Buenos Aires. Some cinephiles will see the image as a nod to the Lumière BrothersEmployees Leaving the Lumière Factory (1895), or the famed Odessa Steps sequence in Soviet filmmaker Sergei M. Eisensteins Battleship Potemkin (1925). Executed and filmed by Gabriela Golder, this performance is loosely inspired by Analogía I (1970 – 1971), a seminal work by Víctor Grippo (1936 – 2002), who is considered the father of Argentinian conceptual art. Golder offers a re-reading, while evoking the social power of the masses that leads to movements and street occupations.

This film is part of the FIFA EXPERIMENTAL section program BACK AND FORTH.
