Eco da Víscera is a film and sound essay by artist and composer Jonathan Saldanha, based on the archetypes manifested in human gatherings, festivities and rituals, and perceived as an attempt to intersect the visceral gesture with pre-language. The film follows a group of people inhabiting different places through an a-chronological montage of a exquisite kind of catastrophe – the loss of the voice. The film builds up as an organizational and temporal structure which develops through a sequence of voice, gesture, sound and light actions performed in bureaucratic spaces, contemporary ruins, cavities and fake jungles, in convergent movements of people, buildings and impetus assembled to reenact an invisible world.  //
