ANTO ASTUDILLO + FRANCI DURÁN ON CORRIENTE.ES
"I'm in love with the film Temple Island with Eddie Martinez.
Eddie Martinez is an amazing giver and Anto at that moment became a thankful and abundant receiver. I thought a lot about it. True, real and made me think as a viewer, how dance and body were for humans at the beginning. Perhaps people were dancing all the time when they would feel intimate. I also read that our body develops instructions at the age 1-2 and stays in our memory all life. It’s call just 'being at the moment'. Anto did a very powerful film!"

WHY DO I MAKE FILMS?
As a queer Latin American artist I make films to break conventions because I want newer generations of minorities to feel represented. I believe that today we live in a multicultural, gender fluid world where cultural boundaries and traditions are shifting and film is a powerful tool that can motivate and display these changes.

BENEATH THE LIGHT/
BAJO LA LUZ
Beneath The Light is a film that experiments with narrative to explore different mental/emotional states of the character. The film is not intended to tell a story but rather to open doors and portals to situations that can be ordinary or extra-ordinary. Situations that we could all somehow experience during our lives. I consider this to be a dance film and much of the acting, editing and filming constitutes a choreography that develops in time.
