Líneas Divisorias

Wednesday
Synopsis

There are many ways of resurrecting. But this one is my mother’s favourite.

Dividing Lines | Líneas divisorias is a multi-lingual dialogue between modern and ancestral relationships to living and dying. The Aluna team continues to push their highly visual design, original music, and poetic narratives created through a ceremonial dramaturgical structure.

The story is inspired by a close encounter with death and an artistic exchange in the Amazon. The former experience led to the question: how do you want to die? The latter asks: how do you want to live?
