video essay ‘Playing in the street’

Soy Cámara (online tv program produced by CCCB) releases every Friday new audiovisual capsules about contemporary society’s most pressing issues. Chapter released Dec 20th is titled Playing In The Street, and it was directed by Pepon Meneses and me.

The zoning in urban space of play, representing its segregation from the bustle and chaos of the city, destroys the very nature of play and what it has always been: learning to live together and relate with the world. This episode of Soy Cámara is a nostalgic celebration of the street as a place of growing up, which our cities may no longer be in time to recover.

Directed and written by Laura Ginés and Pepon Meneses // Edited by Laura Ginés and Taller Estampa // Soy Cámara Producer: Víctor Diago.
