A partir de un trabajo documental con actrices latinas en Los Ángeles y Nueva York, Ese animal que soy a veces pone en crisis la representación dramática y expone el cuerpo performático en zonas de riesgo. Tres actrices comparten con los espectadores sus experiencias de vida, estrategias de sobrevivencia y reflexiones sobre el arte de actuar, testimonios que aparecen en distintos formatos y que se superponen con una atmósfera que utiliza elementos sonoros y audiovisuales para recrear los espacios que estos cuerpos habitan. Ese animal que soy a veces presenta una mezcla de ficción y no ficción, de metáfora y literalidad, una mirada única sobre un oficio bajo las políticas de inmigración de Trump.

Amor, Wyatt, Amanecer and Billy defend love and peace, they live threatened by a three headed monster: individualism, rationalism and materialism. Outside the global warming is unbearable, the elite invent wars and no one wants to listen or face reality. They all walk like the living dead, isolated by their headphones and their technological prosthesis. The human decay is the common denominator and the only place to find shelter is the vegan restaurant of Los Pied Pipers in Woodside, Queens.
Adapted & Directed by Alejandro Aguilar
