El helicoptero - Dora Garcia

El helicóptero

Dir: Dora García|Belgium / Spain|2016|6 mins|U

Happening by Oscar Masotta, October 1966
Happening again and filmed by Dora García, 12 September 2015

In 1966 Argentinian author, critic and psychoanalyst Oscar Masotta organised three happenings (or anti-happenings). These happenings still surprise us today because of their handling of audience, events, signs, narratives and haunting.

El helicóptero is the film footage of the re-enactment of Masotta's "The Helicopter" happening and, the first chapter of a longer film by Garcia titled Segunda Vez, which will dwell on the idea of "happening again", not only with respect to re-enactment, but even more so in the context of fantastic literature, visionary fiction and alternative history.
