Promotion for Peludópolis, from Despacito: A Quick Survey of Latin American Animation
Simón Wilches-Castro presents a lecture on the distinct history of Latin American animation—in his words, “the history of a fractured continent trying to figure itself out.” Film clips illustrate and enrich the talk.
Leaf introduces a selection of her films made between 1969 and 2004. Her intimate, tactile animations focus on familiar spaces that we share as families and communities, with simply observed stories that feel true to life.
Borg presents a selection of her films, which interrogate questions of form and explore the pull between the real and the mediated, between nonfiction and the constructed genres of science fiction and horror.
