In-Person

From its deep vibration tracks to the nonlinear narrative, barrunto is a film that attempts to activate sensations and modes of being with the world and in connection beyond Western frameworks of knowledge, a sensorial translation meant to be felt more than understood.

barrunto is a speculative narrative informed by poetry and theories of quantum entanglement across diasporic distance. An intimate exploration of grief and resistance in shifting landscapes of loss, from the streets to the bed — in sites of displacement, nuclear contamination and military occupation from Scotland to Puerto Rico.

Made in collaboration with Shanti LaLita, Claude Nouk, Alicia Matthews, Harry Josephine Giles, Nicole Cecilia Delgado, Sharif Elsabagh y muchxs más.

Directors Spotlight



A picture of a person named Emilia Beatriz. They are wearing a deep lilac colored jean jacket and blue denim jeans, against a worn rusty background. They have a brunette buzzed haircut and are looking at the camera fondly with their head tilted slightly.

Emilia Beatriz

Director

Emilia Beatriz is an artist and access worker from Puerto Rico’s diaspora, based in Glasgow. Emilia’s practice is concerned with the stories that absence and rupture tell, as experienced through entangled histories of bodies and land. Emilia engages translation across senses; moving at the pace of island time, sick time, moss time. Informed by Aurora Levins Morales’ ‘historian as healer’ methodology, Emilia’s films weave historical and speculative narratives —grounded in oral history and community archiving— centering dreaming, action, and griefwork attuned to climate and place. BARRUNTO is Emilia’s first single-screen film for cinema contexts. Emilia is co-founder of Collective Text, a disabled-led group who collaborate on creative captioning, audio description and interpretation.
