Cervantes Film Series: Zinegoak 20th anniversary. LGTBIQ+ Animation
With a captivating work drawing on a black and white photographic image, director Adrian Garcia Gomez delves into memory to orient his imagination regarding identity and the past in the environment of the western and Mexican cinema of the 1940’s and 50’s. This short film follows its predecessor Mikveh (2016), and shares that film’s sensitive attunement regarding its formality and concerns, which the Californian creator will continue in his subsequent work, using a much more complex visual composition.
Free Community Event
The Cervantes Institute maintains its program dedicated to LGTBIQ+ identities by collaborating with institutions and monographic festivals to make their film series more visible. This year, the program dedicated to highlighting the celebration of LGTBIQ+ Pride Day comes from the Basque festival Zinegoak, which celebrates its twenty years of existence with the presentation of an animated film series whose films address this theme on our Vimeo channel. Throughout four weeks, we will see short films that showcase a wide range of identities and LGTBIQ+ collectives through the different techniques that animation provides, and we will also have the opportunity to enjoy several short films by young creators from Basque Country.
