12:00 pm MST (available for 48 hours) Instituto Cervantes Vimeo Channel Here La tarara is a children’s game and also the diary of a summer, a gift between friends, a love letter, a family portrait, a song, a wink of reality. Shot during the summer of 2021 in Seville, the film is not a closed piece, but a process that continues to date, like an eternal look, evoking the personal, the intimate, like a song of the soul.

12:00 pm MST (available for 48 hours) Instituto Cervantes Vimeo Channel Here Ningún río me protexe de min takes as its starting point the mysterious theft of a material from the Central African Republic, inside the forest of the Congo Basin. This acts as a response to the conflicts arising from the fragile and trans-subjective encounter with the not-self: an encounter that can only be practiced or experienced, because if it is virtualized, it ceases to exist.

12:00 pm MST (available for 48 hours) Instituto Cervantes Vimeo Channel Here A portrait of the landscape of the San Sadurniño area. Natural architectures, still-lifes, spaces of green lights and absolute browns. Filmmaker Lucía Vilela explores the texture of the cut wood, the tiles on the roofs of the houses, the tops of the trees that follow the cadence of the drums of Mociños de Igrexafeita (1971), a popular song that favors an atmosphere of rhythms sheltered by the texture of the celluloid.

12:00 pm MST (available for 48 hours) Instituto Cervantes Vimeo Channel Here In 2016, a search for information began in Filmoteca Española for a research projection on the documentary film Rocío, which had been censored in the early 1980s. Among the materials deposited in its warehouses were 260 rolls of 16 mm photo negatives. They were the leftovers of the editing, footage that was left out of the final version. The forgotten images of a banned film come to life on the screen after forty years in Descartes. (more…)
12:00 pm MST (available for 48 hours) Instituto Cervantes Vimeo Channel Here Sin Dios ni Santa María takes as its starting point the historical rereading of the figure of the witch, an investigation that led its directors to texts like Calibán y la bruja, by Silvia Federici. It is an analysis that unearths the dynamics of social expropriation directed over the body, knowledge, and reproduction of women for centuries. Free Community Event.
12:00 pm MST (available for 48 hours) Instituto Cervantes Vimeo Channel Here In her first films, Jaione Camborda chose to shoot in super-8 as a sign of identity, with confidence in the image, materiality and lyrical grain. Throughout her filmography, the filmmaker reflects from an ethnographic perspective on man’s relationship with the animal, violence, and the atavistic, as we see reflected in her pieces Proba de axilidade (2015), A rapa das bestas (2017) and Videogramas #4 (2022).

12:00 pm MST (available for 48 hours) Instituto Cervantes Vimeo Channel Here David Domingo is one of the renovators of experimental cinema in Spain. Continuing the legacy of Iván Zulueta and absolute reference of analog cinema in super-8 and 16 mm (the format in which he shot his first films), Domingo is the owner of a unique imaginary in which pop references, visual experiments of all kinds, animations (from frame-by-frame animation to visual collage), domestic epic and a dazzling and colorful aesthetic converge.
