Trends in Latin American Experimental Animation

Feb 20

Curated by Lina X. Aguirre y Cecilia Traslaviña

Curator in attendance!

Monday, Feb 20 at 07:00PM
Moebius animación, a curatorial and critical project dedicated to Latin American experimental animation, presents a selection of 16 short films from Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, Chile, Mexico, and Puerto Rico, produced between 2007 and 2014 by independent filmmakers and artists. This compilation is the result of their effort to map out the artistic field of experimental animation and its intense dynamic during the last decade. They have defined trends in the technical, narrative, material, and sensorial/affective dimensions of the works. The films explore and reinterpret a variety of techniques  such as pixilation, stop-motion, drawing, film scratching, 3D, and animation with painting and metals  as well as conventions in the use of space, sound and editing.

Screening (85 min.)
