Climate change is not a battle with the natural environment but an opportunity to heal alongside nature. Sentipensar with Cine Earth is an exploration of cinematic poetry traversing along intercultural terrains pushing and pulling between the digital and the tactile.
“Sentipensar” is a Latin American Indigenous concept used by thinkers and activists to practice storytelling and knowledge making in solidarity with mother earth (Pachamama).
In this work, Salvador uses the concept of “Sentipensar” to explore how cinematic poetry help us dissolve the war-like rhetoric used to describe our transition through climate change and consider new narratives based on human diversity, healing and intercultural exchange. The works also marks an opportunity to explore a personal sense of Indigeneity by asking the question, what role does human diversity play in experimental media responding as a creative intervention to the climate crisis?
Salvador is inviting us all to try a little of, “Sentipensar”.
