Baraka: the pulse of the image¿what is Baraka about?
It deals with the planet Earth, a planet inhabited by a curious animal whose habit and most outstanding practice is to dream themselves men.
This story is about the complex relations between men and the planet, for its discourse and development, it dispenses of every word or oral story.
It is told from the mere flow of the music and images. This could be understood as shortage, but it is actually, his great contribution. Hallucinating, frightening, disturbing, powerful or incredibly beautiful images and its sonorous correlate. Pulse by pulse the musical themes specially composed by Sebastián del Hoyo transform image and sound into a unit in their own right.
Thus, image and sound, sound and image are replicated, contradict, integrate, and interact forming a powerful story of which you do not come out unscathed. Thus the forceful and concise route from primitive misnamed societies to hyperdense societies urban areas, from rural to mechanized and industrial activities, from spirituality to war, from construction to destruction, opens access to fundamental questions about the complex relationships of men with the planet and with himself.
