Diego Martir’s recent show at The Public Theater in NYC was one of the most anticipated events of the year. As the first major art exhibition in years to be shown in New York City, the show opened with a short speech from the artist himself, followed by a screening of his long-awaited film.
Martir’s film, “Diego Martir age” is a visual essay that was shot in his own living room, and explores the artist’s life as he was dying of cancer. The film consists of interviews with Martir and his friends who also suffered from cancer, who talk about their experiences of living with the disease.
The film was shot in the final months of Diego’s life which was actually his final interview. He was dying of cancer, so it was a pretty poignant time to be able to tell his friends he was dying. And it’s a beautiful film, too.
The film includes many beautiful moments, and was a very touching experience to see diego Martir speak of the love he had for his friends. It also included a great montage of his friends dying, which helped me to imagine diego Martir dying. I can imagine him being lonely and not wanting to talk to anyone he loved, but he knew that he had to go on living because he loved them, and that he was going to die being part of their team.
I imagine the last scene, he sits alone in his apartment and cries, seeing his friends die, then his body fades and he’s nothing, just a shell. It was a very emotional film for me. I saw it twice, and it was one of my favorite movies.
I have just finished reading the book of the same name and its cover art, and it has been quite a journey for me. I can’t say I’m an expert on the art, but I can say that it has been a very emotional read.
Diego Martir, the main character, died in the movie before he could finish his story. His last words were, “I’m sorry I was wrong. I was wrong to be angry with you.” If you ask me, this is one of my favorite movies. I highly recommend it, especially when you’re watching it with someone who does not like movies but is into video games.
Martir’s story is only three decades old, but every time I hear it, I have a hard time not crying. The story focuses on a man who is still young, still a coward, still innocent, but somehow he is going to win against the very greatest of all beings. I’m not sure how Martir came to be the one to turn against the greatest of all. Maybe he was born that way. Maybe he had to be. Maybe it’s just a coincidence.
I have no idea.
Martir was born in the year 1810, only one month before the Spanish Revolution. He was a noble from the family of the King of Spain (but not the one who ruled the country), but he was so lazy that the entire family was ordered to be arrested. The king himself was locked up and put in a dungeon for three months. The people of Madrid, the capital of Spain, were so furious that they burned down the whole city.
