OPTIC NERVE XII
Carlos Llerena Aguirre, Valor Y Fe 1:43 min
Faith, courage and loyalty are referenced in street dogs from all over the world. The film creates a contrast between the stray dogs and sacred altars as symbols of religious passage. The altars depict Gauchito Antonio Gil, a saint from Corrientes, North of Argentina. The score details the life of San Jose de San Martin, liberator of South America.
