LOVE TO PIECES
Violeta Ramirez | Bali, France 2014 | 7 Min. | OmeU
Camera in hand on the Indonesian island of Bali, V. Ramírez filmed cockfighting performances, keeping the focal point on the symbolic dimension of these confrontations. The ritual is staged in the midst of the local community as bets are settled, then give way to the madness of the game and the spectacle of horror. These Balinese men become one with their animals, whom they cherish before the duel and follow until they die.
