giroscopio is a short experimental film by two artists, one in Pennsylvania and one in Puerto Rico, each in pandemic lockdown, each disoriented. Objects seem to control them; their bodies are unbalanced, unwieldy, comical. The horizon spins; the ground falls away; and yet a strange wonder reigns. / giroscopio es un cortometraje experimental de dos artistas, uno en Pensilvania y otro en Puerto Rico, cada uno en confinamiento por la pandemia, cada uno desorientado. Los objetos parecen controlarlos; sus cuerpos son desequilibrados, difíciles de manejar, cómicos. El horizonte gira; el suelo se cae; y, sin embargo, reina una extraña maravilla.

giroscopio is one of the best movies I’ve seen in a long time. Such a spectacular connection between the two protagonists; stunning, resonant, haunting images. Evocative text; the whole thing just works. / giroscopio es una de las mejores películas que he visto en mucho tiempo. Qué conexión tan espectacular entre los dos protagonistas; imágenes asombrosas, resonantes e inquietantes. Texto evocador; todo simplemente funciona.” - Lynne Sachs, 2022
