Latin American Experimental Animation Favorites

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) 

(Adult themes)

"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)

A mysterious portrait of the beauty in decaying of natural wild life.

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?

First Directors Round Table Meeting Recap

The first Animation Directors Round Table Meeting ever, which was last night, was absolutely great.

We went over everyone's projects and goals and talked about whatever issues we were having. Everyone was very supportive and encouraging to each other, we set goals for the next meeting, talked about technical issues, and decided upon meeting frequency, and we had some nice booze and trail mix at the same time at the lovely Overlook Lodge.


After the official business was done we listened to some great live music and talked to each other about various artsy topics.  There were a few new faces who I hope we see again, and a few returning ones that I always love to see!

We decided to hold the meetings monthly. To make it easy lets set it on the first Wednesday of each month- so the next Directors meeting is on Sept 7th at 7:00pm- venue TBD! If you want to be signed up to the group for the purpose of working on a specific personal project, email me (Darcy) at cincycan@gmail.com.

We will…
