Film Description:

This video is a collaboration with Patricia Bedregal Velasco de Avila, an amazing musician and childhood friend who lives and works in La Paz, Bolivia. During this pandemic year, she composed the music there and I did the animation in Washington D.C. My ink drawings submerged in water and alcohol respond to the music, together unfolding a renewed tale about love—Eros—and peaceful demise—Thanatos, gods that gave us imaginary solace during these difficult times.
