“Programa de vídeos que utilizan el found footage, así como cierta noción de fragilidad en la imagen, para narrar particulares historias personales. Ortega construye una narración sin costuras a partir de material de archivo sacado de Internet. Ramos-Velasquez utiliza escenas del cine donde aparece a menudo Donald Sutherland. Husk condensa en pequeños vídeos sus diarios personales.” OFF-LOOP
