Recordando El Ayer
16mm black and white reversal film with sound, 9:00, 2007
Recordando El Ayer is a portrait of Jackson Heights, a condensed area of Queens, New York that has become home for a high concentration of Latin American immigrants. This is an effort to document this space, in this specific moment in time, and to make it visible.

I was struck by the physical manifestation of a city landscape that has been slowly modified and reconstructed to resemble another. The neighborhood with its streets and textures and sounds, becomes a mirror not just of another place but also of another time, and of a past that is built upon collective memory. Beneath this reflection, the space remains an unfamiliar environment to its inhabitants and questions the meaning of ‘home’.

Recordando El Ayer
16mm blanco y negro con sonido, 9:00, 2007
Recordando El Ayer observa la construcción de identidad y memoria través de texturas cotidianas en un retrato de Jackson Heights – Nueva York, lugar donde residen un gran número de imigrantes LatinoAmericanos. Imágenes de la calle, de personas y de rituales diarios, dibujan el pasar del tiempo en un barrio que se convierte en un espejo del lugar de origen de sus habitantes, al igual que del pasado.
El paisaje refleja la creación de una nueva condición y del desplaciamiento dentro de este nuevo ambiente. El significado de hogar nace del espacio público y de una recolección colectiva.

Le début de Recordando El Ayer décrit l’intérieur d’une modeste chambre. Par unflash éblouissant localisé sur un pan noir de l’image, surgit soudain une figure jusqu’alors présente mais invisible. Le saisissement ainsi créé produit une épiphanie matériologique. Ils’agit d’une déclaration figurative : les êtres simultanément sont toujours déjà là, et pourtant toujours des apparitions fulgurantes, que le cinéma permet de réaffirmer comme telles à n’importe quel instant. Le cinéma est ce medium capable de manifester la Gloria (selon le terme christologique réinvesti par Merleau-Ponty), la gloria stupéfiante de l’ordinaire. Poser une telle invention en matière d’exposition des figures à l’orée du film rejailllit bien sûr sur l’ensemble de celui-ci, où la figurativité invente une intersection entre 90 Lee 5 Elastane 8 Scarlett Doodle Lyocell Jeans Placed Coton 5 1 A7RH6q
le naturalisme et le spectral, dans la tradition de l’Eldorado de Marcel L’Herbier (1921), du Rapt de Dimitri Kirsanov (1933) ou du Sous le soleil de Satan de Maurice Pialat (1986), mais dans un cadre strictement descriptif et non narratif : du « naturalisme mémoriel », selon le terme d’Alexandra Cuesta.
