Interstitium: the space between two bodies.
In this piece by Michael Labarca, the Zulia-born filmmaker employs footage recorded between takes of his short film La culpa, probablemente, to show viewers what makes up the substance that floods intermediate moments –the expectant looks, the expressions of concentration, the moment in which the narrative drama is broken, or the peculiar disposition of bodies around the fiction about to take place.
La culpa, probablemente (summary)::
It’s nighttime and there’s a power outage in the city. A single mother is visited by Cándido, her last partner and her most recent failure at finding a father figure for her little daughter. He comes back because he wants to protect them in the dark, probably.
