Study of a Soul is a concentrated registration of the reality of a mother and child living in a humble home in a slum in Lima, Peru. Sarita was born with a brain damage. She can hardly move her arms or legs and she is almost blind. She is totally dependent on her mother. Sarita hardly leaves the house. She is eleven years old.
I have tried to look at the reality of Sarita and her mother in a pure way, with my eyes undressed.
Study of a Soul was recorded in El Agustino, Lima (Peru) in the winter month of August (both in 2007 and 2009). Music composed by Jaime Oliver. Screened at ICPNA, Lima, in November 2009.
