This documentary uses essays, photographic self-portraits, texts, and videos from the personal journal of Angélica Lidell, a free artistic universe, radical and poetic, and tormented by loneliness, sex, love, beauty, and death.
Angélica Liddell, wild Alice, prepares Todo el cielo sobre la tierra (el síndrome de Wendy) swallowing handfuls of dirt, howling her voice away in each rehearsal. A vital urgency, she repeats; my work is my own life. In her plays, that flow of intensities and associations turns sense into something elusive and, at the same time, as direct as a blow in the face inflicted with rage and love, with the right force. As she tells her actors, there’s some overwhelming intuition that leaves explanations aside in order to allow for mystery to appear. Rehearsals turn into long photo sessions locked up in a hotel room, into the drawings in her notebooks, into news clippings, scribbled annotations and endless journals. A cry whose resonance endures, invades the space and dominates it. MA
