On the rock, Ariel Sáenz sails to the wind in this audiovisual essay about movement in climbing. The air, wind, and breathing, as an immersive river; a rhythm that sets the movement’s pulse. Scratchy hawks and deep clouds; somber nature, violent even, yet bright and aglow. AER is the holistic experience of Ariel Sáenz’s climbing. It is a meditation, a trance, in which Ariel reflects on such a unique corporeal experience lived on rock climbing.
Focused on documentaries for more than ten years; interested in deepening and researching in a sensitive and creative way what defines us, the popular culture, the human body —its forms and possibilities—, as well as our conflictive relationship with the environment, the nature/human being dichotomy.
