INVERNO DOS CAVALOS (2017) / Winter of Horses
Migration is certainly not a recent phenomenon; on the contrary, it has been part of human history since its inception and is definitely not exclusive to human beings…. Animals and humans, from the most remote times, migrate for a variety of reasons. In fact, even sponges, larvae and jellyfish make use of this animal characteristic: the mobility to adapt to imperfect habitats. Migrating demands, in fact, a bit of courage, freedom, when planned over the long term…But what would happen if we were to migrate suddenly, due to natural or man-made catastrophes and, at times, conducted in a cruel and brutal manner? Before such questions, would we, human beings, manage to maintain rationality or would we instinctively act on the appeal for survival?
Inverno dos Cavalos examines the migration experience as a risk factor and psychological vulnerability as an intrinsic characteristic of migrants, in addition to making a reflection on forced migration systems and the “states of survival” that we need, to face, through, escape, resist: to survive.
