The Video Essay: "NOTE 10: Kráter"

FILMADRID and MUBI's annual collaboration returns, premiering seven new works of video criticism.

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. The limits of this discipline are constantly expanding; new essayists are finding innovative ways to study the history of cinema working within images. With this non-competitive section of the festival, both MUBI and FILMADRID will offer the video essay format the platform and visibility it deserves. The seven selected works will premiere online from June 5 through June 11, 2023, on MUBI's online publication Notebook. The selection was made by the Notebook editors and FILMADRID.

NOTE 10: Kráter by Mayra Morán

NOTE 10: Kráter is a broth simmered with many different ingredients. It works as a story, a nightmare, a joke, an action movie without special effects, an audiovisual bridge to the possibility of imagining the hangover of destruction.—Mayra Morán


APUNTE 10: Kráter es un caldo cocinado a fuego lento y con muchos ingredientes diversos. Puede ser un cuento, una pesadilla, un chiste, una fantasía geológica, una película de acción sin efectos especiales, un puente audiovisual hacia la resaca de la destrucción y sus posibilidades.—Mayra Morán
