El Cadáver Exquisito | Collaborations by Elric Kane

El Cadáver Exquisito | Collaborations by Elric Every sin is the result of a collaboration. - Lucius Annaeus Senecca El Cadáver Exquisito was a true collaboration and a blind one. From one artist’s hands to another we discovered a film, formed from endless possibilities.

Awka Liwen - Rebellion at Dawn

user
Director: Mariano Aiello and Kristina Hille.
Long Synopsis Awka Liwen is the story of the struggle for wealth distribution in Argentina since the genocide of native peoples and the theft of their ancestral territories. For this is was created a culture of racism against the Indian and the gaucho who still lives in society. In 2008, the same sectors as they appropriated indigenous lands attempted a coup to keep their class privileges. There are two competing models of country that the film deconstructs from the following core concepts: Inequality in the distribution of resources. A very small group of people in the country seized huge tracts of its territory killing, enslaving, or expelling their natural owners. Then, the same factional group opposed in the past and present to pay taxes. The history repeats itself cyclically. Industrialization versus commodity-exporting economy. Since the landlord class is consolidated in the country and integrating into the global economy (under the United Kingdom until World War II), that group support a "free trade” policies. The great land owners believes that allowing free entry of products manufactured in the UK - without trying to develop a local industry - is going to give them the possibility of exporting primary products of their great farms with prices more profitable. This class always opposed and oppose today to the country's industrialization. Structural racism. Argentina is defined as a country of European immigrants. But when you look in the mirror is mestizo. The killing of Indigenous Peoples didn’t exterminate complete but maintein the status quo of the colonial over-exploitation. Injustice. Over 500 years have passed of the dispossession of their lands and now, again, are expelled en masse from the land they have left (usually the worst). Globalization. The boundaries of capitalism more primitive and aggressive spread, and go where they previously could not had interest in arrive A case study of Leleque in the huge farm of Benetton. One People, One Culture. Aboriginal peoples are holders of an ancient culture that is partly obscured, if not denigrated by the dominant culture (European Judeo-Christian). Short Synopsis Awka Liwen is the story of the struggle for wealth distribution in Argentina since the genocide of native peoples and the theft of their ancestral territories. For it is was created a culture of racism against the Indian and the Gaucho who still lives in society.

El Cadáver Exquisito | by Sarah Walko

user
El Cadáver Exquisito by Sombra El Cadaver Exquisito began as a seed of an idea but once it was given birth it seemed we could only run to keep alongside its momentum. I did a lot of writing for the film in the beginning as Victor was shooting. We spoke of using a voice over, a narrator who might tells its story like a fable. As the visuals and footage piled up however, it was clear they wanted to be their own narrator. ...

Victor Ruano

Victor Ruano by Sombra -There are four elements that make up the foundation of my memories and of my present, that is to say, of me. They gave birth to and laced themselves through all the situations that mold my life. Two of them arrived at the same time, while I was still a child: my mother's garden and my father's library. I remember the first one deeply, like a cloudy horizon. A forest of roses, with stems that reached to the sky. And the second one, lumin...

Havana Film Festival New York Ready to Rumble

Jointly presented with Havana, Cuba's International Festival of New Latin American Cinema, the Havana Film Festival New York is close, but no cigar.
