Xippas Punta del Este is pleased to invite you to a screening of Pau Delgado Iglesias’s film Escuchame una cosa, 2023 at Xippas Punta del Este Salon space on February 16 at 7pm, in the presence of the artist.

Escuchame una cosa is an artistic exploration on the theme of communication between humans and other species, and is based on encounter experiences with animals such as donkeys, capybaras, horses, chickens, some llamas and a monkey.

Animal studies is a relatively new field that integrates anthropology, biology, arts, philosophy, film, and other disciplines. It studies relationships with non-human through the use of different theoretical perspectives, also integrating forms of non-academic knowledge.

“I am interested in proposing an open and reflective dialogue about the interconnection that exists between all forms of life and the ability to communicate with other species”, says the artist.
