Víctor Moreno, film director and lecturer on Audiovisual Narratives at the European Design Institute IED in Madrid.
Sometimes nothing more is required… And in this case, the sentence might continue as follows: nothing but time, time, time. And a camera.
We became familiar with the name, Víctor Moreno, when, in 2009, he presented a tremendously efficient and mysterious work to the public at large, El Extraño. Those images were both primitive and of the future. Because observing with care provokes monsters. In his last film, Víctor Moreno continues to dissect the world that surrounds us. For two years, he has been filming/observing from within the destruction of a building on the Gran Vía de Madrid and the result is Edificio España, a full-length film premiered at DocumentaMadrid 2012 and subsequently presented at film festivals throughout the world: Bafici Buenos Aires, Doc Lisboa, Donostiako Zinemaldia… If architecture is construction, this is anti-architecture in the form of a film. And a precise portrait of the contemporary world. Behind workers there are machines. Behind machines there is cement. Behind the cement there is an abysm. Behind the abysm there is darkness, in Madrid, Spain, in southern Europe, in the world, today. And Víctor Moreno’s camera continues to film the beyond, as if in reality you were asking us a question: And behind the darkness, what, who, why?
