Cervantes Film Series: Zinegoak 20th anniversary. LGTBIQ+ Animation
The animators included in Ageda Kopla Taldea – a group of twenty artists coordinated by Bego Vicarioapproach– weave a fascinating story that starts from the tradition of the bertsolaris, the Basque poets who recite their improvised verses, to bring us closer to the history of cultural and popular traditions at a time when their meanings and contents are being redefined.
This work is part of the stream of collective animation works that have been performed in recent years in the field of Fine Arts in the Basque Country, such as Areka (2016) or Miraila (2017).
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 accompanying the celebration of LGTBIQ+ Pride Day comes from the Basque festival Zinegoak, which celebrates with us its twenty years of existence with the presentation on our Vimeo channel of an animated film series whose films address this theme. Throughout four weeks, we will be able to see short films that show us stories of all kinds 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 made in Basque.
