The short film tells a rural fable in which two women's teams compete for the victory of a bocce ball game inside a chapel. Assisted by magical avatars they seek to twist their fortunes until a mysterious chant breaks the definition of the match. Guided by the voice, players and spectators leave the game to attend a bucolic scene of singing and lute between Virginia Correa Dupuy and Vida Spinetta interpreting “En qué nos parecemos” (Spanish folk song popularized by Maria Elena Walsh in 1958). The short also has the presence of Fabian Serna (Malambo Champion in Laborde 2020). PARAISO was premiered on the last edition of Paris Fashion Week (2021). This multidisciplinary collaboration, the second between Corera and Sadaels, seeks to reinforce the concept of native Criollo surrealism, already present in the previous film “Un Amor Verdadero” premiered on Paris Fashion Week 2020. The film is characterized by a debt to Latin American magical realism and an aesthetic rarefiedness based on an eclecticism typical of Argentina.
