Lina X. Aguirre of Moebius animación presents a lunchtime lecture on Trends in Latin American Experimental Animation sponsored by PNCA Animated Arts.

Also on Friday, February 24, Aguirre will present a screening of Trends in Latin American Experimental Animation, curated by Lina X. Aguirre y Cecilia Traslaviña of Moebius animación at Hollywood Theatre at 7pm. The screening will be followed by a Q & A.

LIna X. Aguirre is a member of Moebius animación, a curatorial and critical project dedicated to Latin American experimental animation. Moebius has curated a selection of 16 short films from Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, Chile, Mexico, and Puerto Rico, produced between 2007 and 2014 by independent filmmakers and artists. This compilation is the result of their effort to map out the artistic field of experimental animation and its intense dynamic during the last decade. They have defined trends in the technical, narrative, material, and sensorial/affective dimensions of the works. Screening (85 min.)

The sequence of films for the evening screening is organized according to four main trends:

Trend 1: The Life of Things

Trend 2: Narratives of Memory

Trend 3: The Life of Form

Trend 4: Constructing Atmospheres
