“Cada vez que muero” is a hybrid feature film that blends documentary with fiction. The feature film approaches cinema as a ritual of symbolic transformation in the death experience of seven transwomen. The film’s testimonies, along with surreal and fantastic scenes, come together to narrate death viewed from different angles: as related to transfeminicides and as social death that seeks to nullify through exclusion and silence those seen as uncomfortable by others. The film also deals with the multiple deaths that we experience in life; death that speak of resignations, of forgetfulness, of separations, of changes. “Caza vez que muero” is an invitation to shake off mourning through delirious weeping or through sagacious bursts of laughter, with the aim of seeing death through the eyes of those who radiate life, celebrate life, and struggle for life.
We are confronted with death and everything that comes with it at some point. In Cada vez que muero, we are taken along on a surreal journey that showcases different angles on subjects such as trans femicides, social death, and the different types of deaths we all experience in life such as resignations and separations.
Cada vez que muero, directed by Raúl Vidales, is a hybrid feature film that blends documentary and fiction through extravagant expressions and aims to view death through the eyes of those who radiate, celebrate, and struggle for life.
The exclusive screening of Cada vez que muero on the 26th of July is a collaboration with Humans of Film and will be followed by a panel talk called “Why is the art world often the only trans accepting space?”, led by Alejandra Ortiz including panellists:
Alexandra R. Ruiz, a trans and migration human rights activist from Mexico;
and Alma Betancur, a Columbian trans and indigenous rights activist.
