The video artist Sara Millot makes films and installations based on documentary elements that she stages and recomposes through experimental processes of writing and editing. For this project, the Borderline Fabrika collective has also welcomed her for an artistic residency in Hendaye during 2021.
In the streets and public squares of Irun, Hendaye and Hondarribia, documentary scenes of the inhabitants of these three cities appear on the façades of the buildings. Short video sequences projected at dusk, which put into practice a formal and narrative investigation, attract the attention of passers-by.
Portraits, documentary fragments, archive images? So many scenes and situations filmed in close collaboration with the inhabitants of Bidasoa that show us the faces and gestures of those who live in this cross-border territory, as well as the stories they wanted to transmit, translated into the three languages that coexist here: Spanish, Basque and French. Anchored in the public space, this creation also gave rise to a micro-edition in risographs documenting the encounters that have marked this project and the diversity of the stories told.
