DESCRIPTION


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.

Selected for exhibition at Optic Nerve XII, Film Festival. Museum of Contemporary Art, North Miami. A jury of film and art professionals selected films to be screened at MOCA.
