Mara Mattuschka

Para Sympathica (1985) 16mm, black and white, 5 min

Genre: Experimental

In a Spanish magazine, I found a list of characteristics considered by the Catholic church to be positive and negative. With two exceptions, the positive characteristics represent passive attitudes. In my film, I represent them mimetically. Using animated imagery, I let the juices which are stimulated by the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous system flow over the body: tears, sweat, sperm, vaginal excretions.
