No Rush

Video, 2017-2018

Four young people undertake a training session of gun practice, without speaking, in such an accelerated fashion that the viewer can hardly breathe. The camera turns around their bodies, pointing at them in the same way they point their guns towards the targets.
The dense atmosphere of the film is the consequence of an extremely tight editing that puts the accent on the presence of the camerawoman, as such invisible on the video, but whose movements tell us how close she stands to the gunners while filming them. The viewer is then not only made aware of the specific gestures of this sport, but also to the very idea of ‘‘shooting a movie’’.
