Alex Reynolds & Alma Söderberg La mano que canta
A voice says ‘bird’ and a bird appears in the eye, when only a second ago it was a hand, or a tree, or a whistle.
Sounds of the manual extraction of cork are coaxed into music by a singing hand. Meanwhile, words in Spanish and English are traded on a rooftop, from one friend's mouth to another. The Hand that Sings attempts a sensorial resistance to fixity and hierarchy in order to remain all eyes and ears, attentive to detail and transformation.

check out this conversation between Alex Reynolds & Alma Söderberg around their film.
Choreographer Alma Söderberg and filmmaker Alex Reynolds met in Brussels in 2016. Since then, their practices are intertwined. Although they work in different fields they share an obsession for the tension between the aural and the visual and its political, ethical, and aesthetic implications. They think about background and foreground, and about how listening is a tool to move into the depths of seeing.
