Moon Cycles

Audio Tracks 

Luna enjoys sex without any commitment with men she encounters on the Cerro Santa Lucía during the night, however, the darkness hides more than just the unlawful sexual acts that happen outdoors in the middle of the City of Santiago. The moonlight beams that draw the silluette of the protagonist only allows us to see what she wants us to see, wether she’s a man or a woman, or if her heart’s broken or not, are questions that the camera will try to answer as the image melts slowly to the rhythm of the unknown Santiaguina’s night and her most interesting protagonist.

The camera follows intimately a lonely individual, unveiling little by little her fears, insecurities and contradictions, but also her eager to be loved and accepted by a society that does not recognizger for what she is.
