Ojos para mis enemigos (2014)

2014 | Puerto Rico | Beatriz Santiago Muñoz | ★★★

Beatriz Santiago Muñoz's intriguingly conceived Ojos para mis enemigos is a mildly diverting ecologically-aware short film, featuring cramped, awkward framing, an inquisitive, roaming eye, and a slightly heightened ambient soundtrack.


"Set in a former US Navy base in Puerto Rico, Ojos para mis Enemigos [Eyes for my enemies] observes how multiple introduced and indigenous species—plants and crops, but also animals, humans and not—share this terrain and together constitute a new space, offering poetic as well as very concrete scenarios of the anthropocene, its devastation but also modes of recuperation."
