I am a Spy

It was only in the twentieth century we needed papers to have an identity. Kafka’s Joseph K scrabbled in his pocket for something better than a bicycle license to prove who he was in the brave new world where official documents separate those who belong from those who are not allowed to belong. The borders of the new nation state offered frames for subterfuge. What happened on one side of the border had to be understood on the other. In the century when we invented aviation, when we invented cinema, in an age when we can move more and see more than any other point in history why have we become so watchful and so performative? I Am A Spy is a film that observes this watchfulness.

In ANAHÍ there is a separation: a daughter grows with the absence of her mother and mother live without seeing her daughter grow. Each one has a picture of the other built in his memory. It is a metaphor of separation and illusion and imagined image of the other when you are away. An image that exists in the mind, in an imaginary world, but that is not real. An image that can not be touched, that in our attempt to catch it disappears
