OF BOOKS AND WOMEN, In production, 2022
Original language: Spanish
A woman was almost called ‘Avioneta’ (light airplane). Another keeps a Franciscan library in a junk room. Another fractures a finger with the stubborn shelves in her bookshop. The cigar makers listen to readings while they work. The ironers remember poems. I sing to all of them.
Against fire, water, moths, dust, ignorance and fanaticism, an anonymous army of women take care of the books. It is an intimate resistance, no epic events, no revolution, no weapons.
