“Parsi” by Eduardo Williams with Mariano Blatt. Guinea-Bissau/Argentina/Switzerland, 2018. 20’

Shot with a 360 degree camera by young individuals within Bissau’s queer and trans community, Parsi take us on a nonstop journey driven by the rhythm of verses from Argentine poet Mariano Blatt’s poem “No es” (“It isn’t”), a cumulative list of what “seems to be but isn’t” that holds out endless possibilities. It is an audiovisual poem about cosmopolitanism, liquidity and uncertainty.

Eduardo Williams’ films explore a fluid mode of observation, looking for mutual relations and open adventures in a physical and virtual network. He believes that uncertainty can yield its own sources of beauty and forms of small-scale resistance through communal escape and shared complicity, so as to chart the rhythms of autonomy over automatism. Mariano Blatt is a poet and literary editor. Mi juventud unida (Mansalva, 2015) collects his poems from 2005 to 2015. He co-directs Blatt & Ríos, an independent publishing house.

Followed by a talk with Eduardo Williams and Andrea Lissoni
