How to run and to stand still at the same time? A Arca de Eden is a poetic film where the texture of endangered plant species is rhymed with the texture of the obsolescent film. The botanical glossary is used to talk about memory mechanisms, interconnection of times and disappearing objects. They say time is imprinted in things but, like on a faded negative, reality cannot be put on hold.
Screened at the International Film Festival Rotterdam in 2012.
