Left Hand Rotation CollectiveSpain/Portugal - 21 min

Through a window in Lisbon the city manifests itself, distracted from its industrial past. The exterior is meticulously renovated, preparing for the great arrival of visitors. A documentary filmed from home, as far as the zoom reaches.

LEFT (the abstract concept) Hand (the object) ROTATION (the action) is a turn in the opposite direction that can happens at any time, a screw to squeeze just the opposite than expected. Left Hand Rotation is an art collective established in 2004 to develop pilot projects in differents formats as video, documentary, installations and urban interventions.
