Throughout the month of September, the Instituto Cervantes’s Vimeo channel becomes a space where cinema, video art, video clips, and other imprecisely defined models of audiovisual creation converge, for it is especially in these tangential territories, in these intersections, where experimentation and development of new audiovisual languages are more conducive.
This month, thanks to the collaboration between the Instituto Cervantes and the festival of contemporary audiovisual art Intersección from La Coruña (Galicia, Spain), the series “Video creation in Galicia: A Cartography” shows a collection of extremely varied pieces, whose common points are, on the one hand, their will to overcome or reinvent the limits of audiovisual language; and, on the other, having formed this Galician festival with an international vocation that seeks to accommodate and disseminate the new voices of audiovisual creation.
From the work of Alberte Pagán who plays with a live recording of an antifascist demonstration projected onto roots to the rhythmic and vibrant video creations of the DSK collective and the animated satire of David Fidalgo, the viewer will find a very broad spectrum of remarkably unique videos.
In short, “Video creation in Galicia: A Cartography” forms a space that is as singular as it is necessary since it accommodates borderline and less frequented cinematographic languages, whose authors are undoubtedly destined to renew the possibilities of audiovisual creation and experimental cinema in Spain.
The films will be available on the Instituto Cervantes Vimeo channel for 48 hours, from 7 pm [GMT+1] on the indicated dates.
