This poetic dialogue between Gabriela Wiener, Cristina Peri Rossi –absent and yet present through her words– and Adiva Koenigsberg's visuals is an ode to the spiral of our displacements. It tells the story of our mental and physical diasporas, and the exile when in exile. It shows its classlessnesses, the moves, its objects, its loves, its fights and transgressions, its frailties and vulnerabilities, its estrangements and nostalgias… It ultimately tells of the liberties of being and living between today's and yesterday's frictions.
