A wake of vultures attacks a table covered with food in a southern landscape. Above and beyond its metaphoric, this is a successful study of the collective organisation of vultures. The constant hissing is at once the birds’ means of communication and the film soundtrack.

“I work about the hidden and the unexpected. We live our lives governed by rules created in order to control chaos and vulnerability, but I am interested in the facts we try to hide or repress, in the differences between the private and the public, in the visibility of our everyday life hypocrisy.” Greta Alfaro, 2011
