"This film was made solely and exclusively for the spectators attending this projection. It has never been screened before and will never see the light of day again. This film is not a film: it is a portal. You, the viewers, together with the unwieldy sounds of the ancient future and the southern house that conceals hides the darkness of the universe, hold the key. These are no mere words, but an actual invitation to open the doorway."
Tin Dirdamal (Monterrey, 1982) is a self-taught filmmaker who judges the success of his films by how much of himself he has been able to surrender on the way. His debut, De nadie (2005), won the Audience Award at Sundance Film Festival and the Ariel Award for Best Documentary Feature, as well as being screened at l'Alternativa 2006. His following two films, Ríos de hombres (2011) and Muerte en Arizona (2014), received funding from the Sundance Institute, Tribeca Film Institute and Rockefeller Media Artists and were screened at Visions du Réel, IDFA, La Mostra de São Paulo, BAFICI and FICUNAM, which also premiered his latest feature, Dark Light Voyage, being screened as part of l'Alternativa Official 2021.
