Partir to Live (2012) is a non-narrative film experience in sensations, in ethical confusion, and in physical and psychic contusions, directed by Domingo Garcia-Huidobro of Föllakzoid. Dutch minimalist composer Jozef van Wissem’s score for the film consists of appropriated 12-string electric guitar drone, black baroque lute mirror images, and minimal electronics. For the first time ever, Sacred Bones Records will release the DVD and soundtrack LP together in a limited one-time pressing of 1000 copies.
Garcia-Huidobro is an aficionado of paranormal experiences. Partir to Live sees him attempting to reconstruct the previous moments of what could have been one of these episodes. High-tension cables, a forest, an abandoned church, a barefoot woman; past, present and future become confused, and in this dissolved reality, he is not sure to have found what he was looking for.
Partir to Live was part of the official selection at Valdivia Film Festival and premiered internationally at ATP Festival in Camber Sands UK. It has screened at over a dozen more festivals since, including the Brussels Film Festival and the Moscow International Film Festival.
