Machado (Short film) 2019

In collaboration with João Aveledo y Germán Díaz

Going out into the world in these times with a profession such as sculptor is like enter in to the forest with an axe that has a wooden blade and a steel handle...

The story of the axe projects a reflection on uselessness, failure and hope.

With a romantic attitude, the protagonist of the short film devotes himself to a methodical craft process to rework a utilitarian object such as the axe, annulling the function of the tool and turning it into a sculptural object devoid of any practical utility.

The axe with the wooden blade in the hands of its creator entering the forest offers a possibility without any guarantee of success, yet the axe as any other artistic creation contains the hope of fulfilling its "function" or task, while portraying the vital attitude of a creator.
