Playing as part of Open City Documentary Festival 2022 – In Focus: Alexandra Cuesta, presents the first UK screenings of her films, plus a curated selection of work from Ecuadorian filmmakers and artists.
Territorio is a series of portraits of the people of Ecuador photographed in their environment. Progressing as a series of fragments, life plays before the camera while the subject of each shot holds a pose. Cuesta’s aim is to complete the work of Belgian poet Henri Michaux who travelled across Ecuador in 1927, jotting his impressions in his diary as he discovered the country’s landscape and populations.
