Why to think the present from the present? By entering the new performative installation of Lagartijas Tiradas al Sol we are in 2048, listening at the interviews of a group of artists that thirty years ago – hence in 2018 – started the project for a movie. It was (or maybe is) a movie reflecting on how to deal with the heritage of 1968 in Mexico and the student revolts that ended with the Tlatelolco massacre. After El rumor del incendio, a piece in which they convoked the Mexican guerrillas during the 1960s and 70s, Lagartijas Tiradas al Sol is back at the festival in the frame of The May Events with an installation that brings together cinema and live performance. A space to experience a future from where to imagine the present, and where the past never dies, and – as the title says – is not even past. It is also a room where fiction and reality converge: indeed, this installation is the first step of a future movie that the group is making today...
