Protocol

A glimpse of the 16th century fortress walls of the Castillo de San Felipe de Barajas in Cartagena (Colombia) built by the Spanish during the colonial era. Through texture and movement, Protocol reflects on physical and abstract manifestations of power connecting the past to the present.

Protocol is part of a series of experimental short films that explore my sensorial relationship to tourist sites and how their history can be perceived.
