For those of you who missed the Latin American Experimental Animation screening at Mini Microcinema yesterday, here are a bunch of my personal favorites from the show.
Overall the tone of the show was creepy, a little dilapidated or decaying, a little scary, but with genuinely beautiful moments.
Luis- Diluvio Animacion (Chile)
Luis is the 2nd short video of the series “Lucía, Luis y el lobo” (”Lucía, Luis and the Wolf”), it is a follow-up to the short video Lucía. The video was shot frame by frame with a digital photo camera. Materials: charcoal, dirt, flowers, found objects and cardboard.

Aedes- Quique Rivera (Puerto Rico)
“Aedes” is a cyclic animation that explores the relationship between various small objects: a syringe needle, a bullet, and money.
Violence, drug dependance and ambition are as transmissible as a disease on a mosquito bite.
Lucia- Diluvio Animacion (Chile)
Lucía is the 1st short video of the 2-part series “Lucía, Luis y el lobo” (”Lucía, Luis and the Wolf”). The video was shot frame by frame with a digital photo camera. Materials: charcoal, dirt, flowers, found objects and cardboard.

SiSiSISiSISiSiSiSiSiSi- Juan Camilo Gonzalez (Colombia/USA)
The never-ceasing repetition of polite gestures. A micro-universe is created in 4 sets of 11 pieces of paper with hand drawn animated cycles.
Immersed- Soledad Aguila (Chile)
It was good seeing some familiar faces and meeting new people! If you were there, what did you think? Or what do you think of these?
