Historia de un día
The Story of a Day

Rosana Matecki

Venezuela, Documentary, 2009
89 min, DV, Color
Spanish with English subtitles


Historia de un día begins by observing the peaceful life of farmers living in a rural area in Latin America. Day breaks. A woman touches her eyebrows. A man shaves. Chickens are set loose and goats are fed. Little or nothing is said but the soundtrack gradually evolves into a rich, subtle combination of background noise and added sounds. This observation takes on a more contemplative mood, when attention is focused on the other subjects of the film.
