The artworks that make up this selection of the festival revolve around possible representations, evocations and resonances, generated by images and sounds that challenge fundamental aspects of individual, family or collective memories, tracing links with the past in relation to various social contexts.

Aspects of creation, such as working with the materiality of the image, animation, the analog film, the digital image and, of course, the archive, manage to establish a type of cinema close to experimental praxis with various authorial bets, which travel through the codes of the self-portrait, the newspaper, the audiovisual essay and the documentary, questioning what we refer to when we speak of «Memory Image».

Postcards

Paula Andrea Malagón Martínez

A trip to the Colombian Pacific becomes an exploration of the self; a search for something in the middle of the journey. Through random notes and moving postcards a farewell is revealed, but at the same time a meeting. By means of landscapes captured in fixed camera, this film seeks to appropriate the idea of moving postcards, some desert landscapes and others inhabited that seek to connect the self with calm, with contemplation and with its search.
