Heaving upward on a swell of bits
Experimental films from Argentina
curated by Laura Focarazzo
only on VisualcontainerTV
From 9 April to 19 May 2015
Immersed in a sea of faint images under the imposition of a time that contracts, in a world that seems to have shown us everything, this selection of works is presented as a breath of resistance.
Argentinian filmmakers who work their creations by exploring formats and inquiring into the crossroads.
They shoot from the subtraction of the images which, due to multiplicity, are almost impossible to see.
Experimentation that takes place at the time of shooting of the images as much as during developing, and then by intervening directly on the film, or the projection.
They dare to explore from the intimacy of those who are looking far away from the center.
