About MUTA: MUTA is an international festival of audiovisual
appropriation that takes place once a year. We showcase a variety of
films, mostly short films from all over the world that use the
appropriation of existing audiovisual material (or other) as its main
method. The program is accompanied by several activities that include
film performances, workshops, master classes and laboratories all of
them free of cost to our public. This year’s second edition will go
from the 15th to the 24th of November in Lima, Peru, and will have
several showcases later on in other cities of Peru and nearby
countries.

Contracultura y Undergrounds at Princeton University

Jesse Lerner & Luciano Piazza: “Ismo, Ismo, Ismo: Experimental Cinema in Latin America” --- Ism, Ism, Ism is the first comprehensive, U.S.-based project, film program and catalogue to treat the full breadth of Latin America’s vibrant experimental film production. The film series features key historical and contemporary works from Argentina, Brazil, Bolivia, Chile, Colombia, Cuba, Ecuador, Mexico, Paraguay, Peru, Uruguay, Venezuela, Puerto Rico and the United States. Revisiting classic names and forms from the experimental canon, the exhibition daringly places them within a completely novel scope and breadth. From innovative works by Brazilian artist Hélio Oiticica and Mexican photographer Manuel Álvarez Bravo to the breathtaking, yet practically unknown, oeuvre of queer Ecuadorian filmmaker Eduardo Solá Franco, the project takes both the aficionado and open-minded viewer through a journey into a wealth of materials culled from the forgotten corners of Latin American film archives.---Jesse Lerner is a filmmaker, curator, and writer living in Los Angeles. He teaches in the Intercollegiate Media Studies program at the Claremont Colleges.--- Luciano Piazza is an Argentine filmmaker, critic, and writer based in Los Angeles. He studied literature at the University of Buenos Aires, creative writing at New York University, and film and video at the California Institute of the Art.--- Speaker(s): Jesse Lerner--Filmmaker, curator, and writer (Los Angeles, CA)---Luciano Piazza--Argentine filmmaker, critic, and writer (Los Angeles, CA)---Event webpage: https://plas.princeton.edu/events

In the era of silent cinema, the interplay between text and image on the screen was a constant. A major figure in the Brazilian avant-garde, Humberto Mauro, believed that spoken dialogues and intertitles detracted from the moving image.

DIEGO RÍSQUEZ' American Trilogy AMÉRIKA, TERRA INCÓGNITA

DIEGO RÍSQUEZ' American Trilogy AMÉRIKA, TERRA INCÓGNITA

REDCAT- Buy Tickets

In the 1980s, the multifaceted artist, painter and filmmaker from Venezuela, Diego Rísquez, undertook the daunting project of a trilogy about the real and mythical histories of the Latin American continent and made his first feature film: Bolívar, sinfonía tropical (Bolívar, Tropical Symphony, 1979), which became the first Super 8 film to be selected for the Directors' Fortnight at the Cannes Film Festival. Amérika, Terra Incógnita (1988), originally shot in Super 16mm and later blown-up to 35mm, is composed like tableaux vivants offering a visual journey into the reverse perspective of European colonialism—the journey of a captive Indian into the Spanish court.
