Cervantes Film Series: Zinegoak 20th anniversary. LGTBIQ+ Animation
Planned as a mixed media work, Thara combines a documentary style with a narrative built through animation to achieve greater expressive freedom, only achievable through this technique. The short film shows the story of those transsexual people who are forced to work at night and reveals how difficult the lives of these women can be in Latin American countries.
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.
