Elia Arce: The Long Count

The Long Count

Naming the recent dead in Nicaragua, one by one, without stopping. People pause to help us as we remember them...continuously...until all are named. A document with a list of their names, a microphone and a speaker. Somewhere in the streets of Mexico City.
