The Ship of fools

The Ship of fools is a video-graphic diptych that closes the film trilogy on sub-Saharan immigration in Europe, started with Moi, a Noir, Reloaded and continued with Unfoldig Penelope. If Moi, a Noir Relaoaded focused on the lives of immigrants in Europe and Unfolding Penelope in the lives of the women who remain in their native country during the migration processes of their husbands, The Ship of Fools now focuses on the journey.
The project includes two videos:

The Ship of Fools, establishes a visual and conceptual parallelism between ships full of immigrants, which no port wants, the Bosch stamp with the same title and the Foucault text  Madness and Civilization, addressing the migratory journey as a division in itself and a rite of passage that makes it a symbol of permanent exclusion.
Hook a Boat, critically addresses the relationship between European citizenship and the tragedy of shipwrecks in the Mediterranean, emphasizing how this superficial relationship occurs in our moments of media entertainment, which shows our connivance with the policies Migratory and rescue measures designed to keep the migrant population outside our borders.
