'Zooz': Pablo Delfini, Luis Guillermo Gonzalez

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 nations of South America harbour a passionate army of resourceful, motivated and prolific indie animators who clamour to have their voices heard and their films seen. They have much to say and they have an extraordinary palette of creative energies from which to draw. This program showcases a few who of those who are making the loudest noises.
