Criers of Medellín

Medellín’s soundscape is contrasting. In this city there are voices of all kinds, including urban shouting from street vendors. They understand that clientele, like lovers, are seduced by ear, and they commit to this in order to sell their products.

The possibility offered by Pregoneros de Medellín is to tour the city to meet these vendors and confront their realities and problems. An interactive web documentary where the viewer/player engages in dialogue with the realities of informal workers who are rarely protagonists.

On the tour, the user chooses their pace and path, creating a unique film experience. They can go back or turn in specific points, and, from their chair, go to meet criers who will tell and sing a bit of their world. There are interviews, videos, photographs and sound recordings to which the player gains access in the order and the time they want. The tour is performed with ears, eyes and of course with the heart.
