Maleza

a film and a house

2015


Video (color, sound)
Duration: 95 min


DENA built an off-the-grid house in a remote, mountainous area where conditions were extreme—the site was practically inaccessible, there was no water nor electricity—and then shot a movie about it. Maleza is a feature-length film somewhere between fiction and documentary; it narrates both an architectural construction process and the relationships developed between the people working on it.

A film by Alex Expeleta and Gaby López Dena
