Sometimes it is necessary to return to noise in order to be able to listen to music. However, as Helmut Lachenmann says in the film presented at this same festival, this vast universe called noise, far from being a paradise built by free sounds, can end up being a prison for the ears. We must not forget that noise also has its forms, its rules and its traditions. Precisely for showing this genealogy of our listening, for reminding us that noise is our most long-lived cultural tradition, this jury has decided to award the film OS CORPOS by Eloy Domínguez. A film that, based on the observation and listening to the Galician rural carnival, invites us to immerse ourselves in a festival without a calendar, in a noise without a defined time, which is strangely familiar, distant and close at the same time.
Dock Of The Bay 2021 Feature Film Audience Award: "Poly Styrene, I´m a cliché", Celeste Bell (Reino Unido).
Dock Of The Bay 2021 Short Film Audience Award: "Entre el monte y la marisma", Niete (España).
