Cervantes Film Series: Zinegoak 20th anniversary. LGTBIQ+ Animation
With this award-winning short film, Mel Arranz has managed to place himself within the interesting panorama of animation made in the Basque Country. His piece, colored in various shades of black and white, began to take shape during his artistic stay in Mexico and is a visual experiment: his short film manages to demonstrate a bodily intimacy through the detail shots of the touching of skins, hardly representable in live-action cinema.
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.
