Gardens have been a field of constant interest for filmmakers who are not afraid to experiment with language. With Marie Menken at the top of the list, the proximity and infinite variety of shapes and colors they offer is a unique chance for independent and curious cinema. Continuing with the observation of nature, and as a way to strengthen his connection to the universe, Baca sets out on a tour through the gardens of his friends and acquaintances to find out their secrets. The ground, the water, and the air pass by the camera, together with the poems that work as a voice-over narration that accompanies the film’s attractive images. In order to achieve his goal, Baca uses a battery of resources that range from 35mm to video, including the ultimate domestic format: Super 8. In some scenes overexposed live during projection, his new film results in an experience that is more similar to the expanded cinema style of his latest film mujermujer (screened at Bafici ‘11) than to a simple exercise of observation and meditation.
