FILMADRID & MUBI: The Video Essay—“Correct Machine”

A video essay exploring how we perceive technology.
The Video Essay  is a joint project of MUBI and FILMADRID International Film Festival. Film analysis and criticism found a completely new and innovative path with the arrival of the video essay, a relatively recent form that has already its own masters and is becoming increasingly popular. The limits of this discipline are constantly expanding; new essayists are finding innovative ways to study the history of cinema working with images. With this non-competitive section of the festival both MUBI and FILMADRID will offer the platform and visibility of the video essay deserves. The  seven selected works will be shown during the FILMADRID dates (June 6 - 15, 2019) on MUBI's cinema publication, the Notebook. There will also be a free public screening of the selected works during the festival. The selection was made by the programmers of MUBI and FILMADRID.
Correct Machine by Eva Elcano Fuentes
Around the childhood, adulthood and old age, the question is developed: How do we perceive the technology? Although the strangeness is always present, we need to get away from fear and start trying to understand the structure of the machine, its internal structure. A machine that is not free from error to this day, like the human. Both parties are conditioned by "the right thing." In parallel, a cinematographic language derived from its original code is used. Technology is spoken about without using science fiction to increase interest in this kind of cinema, more independent, and extend the limits of the video essay.
