Aria by Brooke Alfaro
A figurative but precise comment with a classic opera voice and an image that moves inside an old building in ruins as its dramatic leitmotif. A debate on the distance between high and low culture appears just at the end, making an ironic yet also ludicrous reflection on Panama’s poor children. Winner of the First Prize in the Concurso Centroamericano de Videocreacion – Inquieta Imagen (Musuem of Contemporary Art and Design. Costa Rica, April 2002).
