Mi vida en tránsito is the diary of an anti-journey and the testimony to a friendship that shines through, created by Elvio Ávila and Savino Caruso.

Caruso met Ávila when he was about to lose his residency status after several years in Switzerland. A friendship developed between the two men, which yielded nothing to the ferocity of immigration policies, and to the dizzying feeling of an existence wavering in the face of this uprooting. Ávila and Caruso give us a deeply human account of this love of art that unites them, beyond the vastness of the globe and the consecrated exiguity of a country that thinks of itself as a fortress in the necessity of breaking through the smokescreen of the male condition and its darker sides.

Mi vida en tránsito is an attempt to identify a human being stumbling with the possibilities of art and to reinject the energy thus acquired into the cycle of life. What kind of art do we want to create and what kind of life do we want to live? What happens when it’s not an artistic desire but the existential need of a human being, which is seen, understood and supported by another human being, that gives rise to artistic collaboration?”
