'Chile Imaginario': Claudio Diaz

Bold, exuberant and energy to spare are some of the characteristics that make up the DNA of much South American animation. From the essences of lost cultures and the barely exorcised ghosts to retro flavoured ‘homages’, these three distinctly curated programs will deliver a rich brew of the best new works and main trends evident in the indie animation scene from Brazil, Argentina, Colombia, Chile, Venezuela and Bolivia...

The South American animating community often hone a very visceral edge to their storytelling craft. The essences of lost cultures, the barely exorcised ghosts of more recent political horrors and part documentary investigations of the unique elements of the South American natural environment - are among the more unique elements South American animators bring to the table.

An old man recalls his early childhood and reflects on how his worldview was affected by being the son of a healer who used a book of occult magic as his main tool.

The heat is on, the fix is in, there is danger around every corner and nobody can be trusted. In times like these, a rabbit has to do what a rabbit has to do.

Wind Up Memories
Maquinas De Anoranzas

Colombia, 9'26, 2012 (Sub)
Looking back at a person’s past is often best done as an act of exquisite subtlety in the South American context.

A compelling and mesmerising animated dance piece summoning a rich cultural roster of ancient spirits whose voices and ancient lessons still resonate across the gaping centuries.

Chile Imaginario
Claudio Diaz
Chile, 21'00, 2012 (Sub)
An astounding achievement and a gripping piece of animated film. The broad brushstrokes of Chile’s political history in the latter half of the 20th century are well known. As the tide recedes on that harrowing period and the stories become easier to tell, the unhealed scars and damaged lives become more and more obvious for all to witness.
