title of video: The House, 2018, 8:15
synopsis: The House is a visual documentation of the decadence of a late 1960s Peruvian middle-class building, as well as an invisible man’s self-portrait. Trapped by the walls he lives in, he seeks help from the words of the great poet Cesar Vallejo, from which he enters into a deep abyss.
