The Magic Bullet, 3' 6", 2018, Peru
This video as its title indicates makes reference to the theory in which it is explained how a single bullet was the one that caused the death of the former president of the U.S.A. John F. Kennedy (1917-1963), concluding that the shooter, Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone, dismissing the conspiracy theory. This work, in a sarcastic way, makes the audience thought how Hollywood has transformed reality in such a way that a national tragedy as the president’s assassination becomes mere entertainment when come through the mass media and advertising.
