Laida Lertxundi. «Footnotes to a House of Love» by Carlos Balbuena

June 2021

Carlos Balbuena, director and film critic, presents Footnotes to a House of Love by Laida Lertxundi. Renouncing a conventional narrative and working on the idea of love as a structural element, the filmmaker composes a series of shots in a California desert landscape in which there is a play between on frame and off frame, sound and image.
