“NEW EYES”, Iberoamerican Showcase
During the 8th EIAC, two short films by Ecuadorian director Segundo Fuérez will be shown free of charge from anywhere in the world: “Yaku Wiki: Tears of Water” (Animation) and “Kuychi Pucha” (fiction), both representative works of Quechua indigenous cinematography.
The exhibition will also include the participation of the short film “El Capulí” by director Carlos Sosa from Ecuador and two short films by Ícaro Espacio, a Mexican project for the promotion, dissemination, encouragement and training of animated short films: “Collage” and “Huitlacohe”.
Finally, thanks to an alliance with the public platform Retina Latina, there will also be the opportunity to see, from Latin America, six animated children’s films (five short films and one feature film) from Uruguay, Ecuador, Mexico, Bolivia and Peru: “Canicas de cuento”, “Anina”, “El armadillo fronterizo”, “El regreso del vampiro”, “La abuela grillo” and “Un zorro se enamora de la luna”.
In our countries, film clubs have contributed to audiovisual literacy and the diversity of views, through screenings, research, teaching, publication and above all through dialogues with audiences. It has also contributed to the production of short films in which students from different generations have taken part. The contingency caused by Covid 19 has led us to take distancing measures around the world. However, this does not prevent us from carrying out our agendas remotely. This year we will hold an Ibero-American meeting to update and disseminate vigorous projects that in the last five years have been consolidating in the field of film and education.
