Lume (Fire) is one of the most recent works by Alberte Pagán, a specialist in experimental cinema, and part of Pagán’s “Superficies” (“Surfaces”) series, in which the director plays with juxtaposing still photographs of natural elements with the movement of his story. In Lume, an intense, reddish chromatic palette, reminiscent of fire, emphasizes the rage shown in the audiovisual images, projected on a photograph of roots. The live sound in the piece is from a demonstration in Santiago de Compostela in memory of 16-year-old Carlos Palomino, assassinated by a neo-Nazi in November 2007.

In September, thanks to a collaboration with Intersección: Festival de Arte Audiovisual Contemporánea da Coruña, Instituto Cervantes presents the film cycle Videocreación en Galicia, una cartografía. The festival presents works created at the intersection between contemporary art and avant-garde cinema, and the films chosen for screening this month demonstrate the artists’ will to overcome or reinvent the limits of audiovisual language.
