      Hablar de la situación carcelaria en Venezuela, es hablar de un problema estructural en permanente deterioro durante los últimos años. Sin embargo, en medio de esa oscuridad, el Sistema de Orquestas Juveniles de Venezuela ha desarrollado un programa de reinserción social a través de la música, que se aplica desde hace tres años en el Instituto de Orientación Femenina (INOF) de Los Teques. El INOF cuenta con 610 internas, la mayoría esperando juicio (o cumpliendo pena) por delitos vinculados a la posesión y tráfico de drogas. Esa característica convierte al centro penitenciario en un lugar sui generis en su composición, pues no sólo se distinguen internas de varias clases sociales y edades, sino que actualmente tiene 93 extranjeras privadas de libertad. En este contexto, la orquesta del INOF viene trabajando de manera sostenida con el apoyo de músicos de Fesnojiv, quienes realizan trabajo voluntario como profesores, y basta con sentarse durante diez minutos en los salones oscuros y húmedos donde tienen lugar las clases, para ser testigos de las posibilidades que brinda la música, ahí donde alguien la convierte en un hecho. Ya que las palabras son apenas los medios para un fin dentro de la orquesta, el documental plantea un lenguaje formal donde la música y el ruido son protagónicos; acaso el modo más respetuoso de contar esta historia en tres actos. Eleison muestra a través de imágenes contrastantes, el camino que sigue cada una de las internas, desde una dimensión individual hasta una colectiva, hábitat natural de la música y clara evidencia no sólo de la reinserción social, sino de la redención como posibilidad en la vida carcelaria. ------------------------------------------------------------------ Talking about the penitentiary situation in Venezuela, is talking about an structural problem in permanent deterioration over the last years, however, in the middle of that darkness, the Venezuelan Youth Orchestra System, has developed a social reintegration program in the Instituto Nacional de Orientación Femenina (INOF), a women penitentiary. The INOF has a population of 610 women, and the most of them are waiting for trial or serving time for crimes linked with posession and traffic of drugs. This characteristic makes this penitentiary center a sui generis place in it's composition, because not only there can be seen inmates from diferent social classes and ages, but also there are currently 93 foreigners in its cells. In this context, the INOF's orchestra has been growing up with the support of musicians from Fesnojiv (Venezuelan Youth Orchestra System, directed by José Antonio Abreu), who perform a voluntary work as teachers. It only needs sitting for ten minutes in the dark and wet classrooms, where the music lessons take place, to be witness of the possibilities that music brings there, where someone makes them a fact. As words are only tools to get to a goal inside the orchestra, this documentary presents a formal language where music and noise are protagonic; somehow the most respecfull way to tell this three act story. Eleison shows, ussing contrasting images, the way that follows everyone of the inmates, from an individual dimension to a colective one, music's natural habitat and clear evidence that social reintegration can be reached.

                -- http://MovingPostcard.com -- This week I saw the opera Rusalka by Antonín Dvořák at the Komische Oper with new friend, book critic and Book Slut editor-in-chief Jessa Crispin. I hadn't planned to make a video about this - due to copyright concerns and because I just wanted to have a relaxed evening consuming art and not trying to be productive. Well, I couldn't keep the camera in my pocket. Although a theater was originally built in 1891/92, it has seen many changes over the decades and was completely rebuilt in 1965/66. So no, those are not original details - and the facade is a not very attractive gray block of cement. By the way, I'm actually not a fan of the gold and glitz combined with cherubs and heroic man statues. It's a little too Donald Trump for me. But it's still impressive. The opera itself was fantastic and, as I overheard someone else say, "kurzweilig" (meaning something that is entertaining and appears to be rather short). Music and performance were wonderful - although I have to admit that due to the German translation and the emphasis on certain words it almost felt comical at times, although not as bad as a sketch by Hape Kerkeling. I really liked the simple, but effective costumes and lack of set dressing and most of all the projection mapping, which projected the shadows of the stage back onto it and then warped it to give the whole stage an spooky underwater feel. Unfortunately I was so in awe, I missed getting video of it.
