Five Minutes For the Soul of America
A surreal and powerful short film that was made in protest against the festivities celebrating the 500th anniversary of Columbus' "discovery" of the Americas. Galindo uses a single shot that encompasses Andean musicians, a football player conquistador and a desolate and ravaged graveyard in his critique, "They call it Discovery or meeting/ To us it is the same dead/ to us it is a day of grief."
