Insight (2012), Sebastian Diaz Morales, 12'00''
We look at a film crew; the film crew is watching us. Cinema as a mirror of reality that becomes fiction. Or is it vice versa? A world with a mirror image, one that can be accessed by crossing the mirror’s surface. Indeed, within the realm of fiction, mirrors provide characters and readers alike with a gateway to a different world. Interaction with that new environment, be it purely fantastic or disturbingly didactic, pushes one to expand one’s horizons and reconsider the concept of a real world.
