Two old friends meet to reconstruct memories from the past. Amidst the chaos of the past, the ambiguity of the filmmaking process and its "normal" narrative techniques Civil War creates a world ready to collapse. With the power of signifying, attestation of presence and as a testimony of history CW is in a constant rearrangements of the circulation of images. Nothing is better than the rest. We are all. Civil War is made without preconceived ideas and without script, it is written at the end of the editing process. Totally based in improvisation, interruptions and fragmentation it breaks the continuity to create a deeply interactive dialogue with the viewer. Using experimental elements combined with humor, Civil War becomes a delightful and complex exercise in self-destruction.

Es una opción experimental en donde el guión se escribe al final de la edición. Construida sin ideas preconcebidas que usan la interrupción, el error, el desorden y la repetición para crear espacios entre las imágenes y los personajes. Personajes que se mueven entre la continuidad y la ruptura, la imagen y la palabra. Indiferentemente GC activa significados y resiste definiciones, te toca y no te toca, le crees y no le crees que nadie es mejor que los demás. Todos somos el todo. Realizada con mínimos recursos y la improvisación, Guerra Civil nace de las relaciones amorosantropófagas entre intervenciones visuales de una serie de acciones construidas al azar, argumentos inconclusos y fragmentaciones que rompen con las normas del cine de buena conducta cuestionando todo incluyéndose así misma.
