When the cause of trauma can only be overcome through an excruciating and exhaustive investigation. Calum Walter makes a penetrating work about images and bullets, especially poignant within the context of a country with a morbid fascination with firearms.
Entrance Wounds marks the return of the American Calum Walter to IndieLisboa, after being awarded in 2014 with his short film Heights. This time the project maintains a record of overlapping images and meticulous sound work to question the time it takes us to forget what we can’t stop seeing. In a society fascinated by violence and firearms, everything at our fingertips, how can we survive the moment that follows disaster? How can we fail to see what is happening in front of our eyes, the open wounds, the horror? Some suggest that the best thing is to let the images in, even the most violent ones, and examine everything in detail, several times, so that little by little they begin to disappear. It seems so simple. Is it really? (Margarida Moz)
