Erasmo Session Individual # 1

Erasmo already participated in some group sessions but never in an individual one. We started with an interview, which became very emotional. He was so released to be able to talk to someone about his life. I was extremly touched by his openness and confidence. We didnt find time to do any animation. Next time!

Miguel Session # 2

Miguel wanted to go to his house and i asked him if he needs help. I was not sure, if this house really exists, i had no idea what to expect. But i trusted him and we went by taxi to Morelos and entered his little room, which was full with stuff till the top. The mission was to make some order into the chaos. He said, he never stayed at this room, he preferes the street. I stayed for hours and helped putting bags full of stuff and wood and boxes from one corner to the other and covered it with plastic. In between i took some photos and recorded sound.

Zombie Session

Today we finally did the zombie session in the cemetery Xoco! We found an old damaged grave, where the "zombies" could come out. We had to hurry a bit, as we didnt have permission to film, so the first take was also the last take!
