Kurzfilme aus Mexiko / Short Films from Mexico

by Juliana Orea, Esteban Arrangoiz, Tess Anastasia Fernandez, Emiliano Rocha Minter, Tatiana Huezo New World View: Mexico

Mexico – a country that unites opposites, where passion and pain walk hand in hand, and filmmakers are not interested in a strict division between short and long film: strong directors with distinctive handwriting such as Emiliano Rocha Minter and Tatiana Huezo leap playfully between long and short film formats. Mexico – still a patriarchal country, where, however, strong female voices emanate from the film scene, both as directors and protagonists. ¡Viva la diferencia! Curated by John Canciani & Laura Walde, Internationale Kurzfilmtage Winterthur
