Cervantes Film Series: Ezohikoak

July 21, 2023

12:00 pm (available for 48 hours)
Instituto Cervantes Vimeo Channel Here

Cervantes Film Series: Zinegoak 20th anniversary. LGTBIQ+ Animation

Through a work with archival photographs, the animator Alejandra Bueno creates a reinterpretation of the presence of women in Basque culture, which combines the manipulation and intervention of these images with the oral enumeration of the functions traditionally attributed to women. The result is a provocative display of how to assume and reverse the elements of tradition and its representation to show its fissures and to open those meanings that are no longer viable or sustainable. In the process, we will witness new representations of gender and sexual orientations that further dynamite the critical discourse.

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.
