SUNSTONE

Synopsis
Fresnel lens is a departing point to unfold a critique of Western epistemologies informed by optical technologies as military and colonial design. The projection of light and its Enlightenments are embedded in the processes and violent imperial gestures of framing, grasping, revealing, discovering and possessing. The lighthouse keeper, Roque Pina, born of the war, inhabits that space between the dark zone and illumination and animates what will be seen. As counter-gesture, the film SUNSTONE seeks lines of flight towards the shadows through an upholding of a politics of opacity.
