  • Lucas Granero's rating of the film The Art of Worldy Wisdom

    R. Bruce Elder configura un autorretrato donde el yo se dispara en múltiples asociaciones, haciendo de su personalidad un conglomerado de distintas sensaciones, texturas y emociones. Capa sobre capa, el espacio que crea es uno completamente ensimismado donde cada reflejo de su mente despierta unos cientos más que se chocan apurados, apareciendo y desapareciendo con la misma cadencia de un parpadeo incesante.
