Moths drink the tears of sleeping birds is a cycle of screenings that explores itineracy as practice.

For each edition, two or more artists are invited to intervene into the space, to contaminate the sound,

image, and environment of the raw material to be screened. How the evening plays out cannot be foreseen, and 

everything disappears with the closing of the night.
