VAN DER KRITZ

The sky behind the eyelids
18 Nov 2022 – 15 Jan 2023

The sky behind the eyelids (2021) is a speculative, decolonial and futuristic science fiction short film, inspired by the funeral rituals of the African diaspora, as a healing experience of collective pain. In a strange world inhabited by plants and ghosts the feminist dark magic and the occult guide the viewer along a dark stream towards cosmic and emotional connection.

Van der Kritz is an artistic collective formed by Alejandra Van der Land and Matias Kritz, based in Buenos Aires, Argentina. It uses speculative science fiction, to address the growing feelings of fear, denial and escapism that are compacting within people in modern societies.
