e-flux presents Me, You, and Everyone We Know
Miguel Calderón, Camaleón | Part Three | Interrelational Arrangements (Interdependency and Survival)
Wednesday, July 21–Tuesday, August 3, 2021

Join us on e-flux Video & Film for an online screening of Miguel Calderón’s Camaleón (2017), streaming from Wednesday, July 21 through Tuesday, August 3, 2021.

In falconry, when birds hunt, they create a bridge between the falconer and the skies, getting lost from sight; but they generally return due to the symbiotic relationship they have established. Camaleón explores this link through a real-life character that depends on his bird as if it were an anxiolytic drug he needed to face reality. This film explores the connection between human and nature by following the protagonist over the course of twenty-four hours, from his shift as a bouncer at a nightclub in the city, until he emerges at dawn to take his falcon out hunting. The protagonist subtly explores the parallelism between the animal instinct to kill, and the implications of this act when it involves a human being.

Camaleón is presented here as one of five films in Part Three | Interrelational Arrangements (Interdependency and Survival), the third of four programs in the online series Me, You, and Everyone We Know: Interrelationality, Alterity, Globalization programmed by Irmgard Emmelhainz for e-flux Video & Film. The series will run in four thematic parts from June 23 through August 18, 2021. Each part will include a two-week group screening, and a live discussion.

Miguel Calderón (b. 1971) works in a variety of media, including video, film, photography, and painting. His pieces often combine a dark sense of humor that is reconfigured into works that explore deep social and personal territories, taking advantage of what is at hand to create low budget films and videos. His exhibitions include The Sharjah 7th Biennial, The Sao Paolo Biennial, Museo Tamayo, The Yokohama Triennial. He was recipient of The CIFO Grants & Commissions Program 2013, the MacArthur Fellowship for Film-Video-New Media 2000, and a Rockefeller Fellowship 1995.
