whispering Lucía

Dear internets,

O, you are the source of so much wonder.
Perhaps in your web you could find me a Spanish speaker who would like to provide me with a gloss of this whispering world?
I watched this without sound and thought beautiful & strange!
I listened to it and am flummoxed.
What can it mean?

"Lucía is a short video shot frame by frame with a digital photo camera. Materials: charcoal, dirt, flowers, found objects and cardboard. July 12th, 2007 by Diluvio"

  1. My spanish is so rusty as to be very misleading here - the speaker's voiceis too soft and hurried. I thought that Lucia was something that lived in the walls whose gift is darkness despite the contradiction of her name.

  2. Thanks B!
    Often I can get the gist of Spanish because it is close to French... but all I could catch with this was Lucia! Lucia! Lucia!


  3. Lucia whispers her nightmares from her bedroom. what she sees and hears at night and the weird neighbor that killed his dog.
    An incredible kid's imagination
    beautiful video

  4. Thank you very much. I really appreciated the video but without comprehending the words it was really just atmosphere and visuals for me.


    there you have the video with subtitles
    plus another gem:
