Special Mention for Hiatus!!
“With Hiatus, Vivian Ostrovsky reincarnates the spirit of the Ukraininan-Brazilian writer Clarice Lispector, by creating a short cine-portrait. A beautiful free-form collage accompanies the words of Lispector, in which Ostrovsky also draws parallels to her own personal trajectory as an artist. With the shortness and intensity of this essay, Ostrovsky utilizes a quote from Lispector’s last interview as a guiding principle – Being asked what is the role of a contemporary [Brazilian] writer today she replied “To speak as little as possible!”
