In her 2021 documentary El cuerpo de la mujer sin sombra, Tamara García Iglesias traces the life and work of Alicia D’Amico, following her artistic trajectory through Buenos Aires, Paris, and Geneva in search of “shadows” of her presence. One of the best-known photographers of her time, D’Amico worked from the late 1950s until her death in Buenos Aires in 2001. She was recognized as a feminist and lesbian pioneer, and in her later, less recognized work she began an “investigation” of female desire and lesbian identity. El cuerpo de la mujer sin sombra raises the question: Is it possible to meet someone through exploring the archive she has left behind?

During the month of July, in a collaboration with film distributor Marvin & Wayne, the Vimeo channel of Instituto Cervantes Albuquerque hosts Te estoy amando locamente, LGTBI+ Short Film Series. The series comprises eight different stories by eight filmmakers, showcasing a remarkable variety of cinematic language while dealing specifically, but not only, with issues of gender identity, same sex love, and transsexuality. These personal reflections, testimonies, and portraits present viewers with realities that are generally underrepresented in cinema. Taking its name from a song popularized by Las Grecas in the 1970s, Te estoy amando locamente is presented in collaboration with the National Hispanic Cultural Center as part of the Bank of America Free Film Series.
