Review

In this short film, Williams combines the rhythmical reading of “No es,” a cumulative poem by co-director Mariano Blatt which is written over the course of his lifetime, with the images of people of Guinea-Bissau. Screened for the first time at the Biennale de l’Image en Mouvement, Parsi borrows the technology and sentiments of VR cameras to capture people constantly moving on the streets. The result is a truly innovative work that explores the images, texts and speech sounds generated by contact between the young Argentinean poet’s language and the unfamiliar images of the Western African country ─ a poetry slam that ignites the youths of the Internet generation through images.

DIRECTOR
Eduardo WILLIAMS
The Argentine director Eduardo Williams engaged with Jeonju IFF through his feature film, the Locarno International Film Festival award winner The Human Surge (2016). The young are the protagonists of his oeuvre, most often a group wandering the streets and bonding in the virtual world. Most of his films are narrative films ? yet they are realistically shot in cinema verite style. His camera adds tension to the films by exhibiting a desolate place thus arousing the sense of the last survivors of an apocalyptic world. However, the young are forever in joy, seeking their own ways of having fun. They are online although their hideout may be a discarded space. Williams presents short works in the linguistic form of the digital generation and Mariano Blatt’s novel My Youth United implicitly expresses the short works of Williams. Blatt is the co-director of Parsi.
