El Arca

“EL ARCA” / “THE ARK”
by CRISTOBAL LEON & JOAQUIN COCIÑA
(English Title: THE ARK)

“El Arca” premiered at the International Film Festival Rotterdam, Tiger Shorts Competition this January 2012.
The short will now be featured in ART BASEL, Switzerland.
(Part of the series “The Third World”)

(2011) Short Fiction Film.

Between 2010 and 2011, Cristóbal León and Joaquín Cociña created the series of short-films “The Third World”. The series is made up of “Padre.Madre.”, “El Templo” and “El Arca”. The films were shown together as a film installation at Upstream Gallery. These films are the foundational chapters of a new creed. They present a savage procession, moving between sacred and intimate, beautiful and horrific, canonical and arbitrary, sublime and bestial. Every film is the beginning of a myth and also its immediate decadence.
