Part of our special Double Bill showing of Carlos Santa’s most well known masterpiece “The Mysterious Presages of León Prozak” and his latest film ” Relatos de Reconciliacion”. An unmissable double bill in which, through poetic metaphors and animated documentary, Carlos Santa disseminates the cruel and relentless conflicts shaking modern Colombian society. What a way to finish the retrospective. A special night deconstructing some of the relationship between Bursting with powerful metaphors, surreal landscapes, and haunting images, Carlos Santa’s imaginative animated films were created within a context of a country ravaged by bloody civil war. They unflinchingly portray the political context of both the philosophical and the day to day struggles of a people living through cruel and relentless conflict.

 

In Spanish with English subtitles

 

Leon Prozak rents Mephistopheles his head to workout some Circus numbers. These scenes, animations proposed by various plastic artists, are the center of the film, the pleasure of painting in motion.

The animated paintings touch diverse subjects that characterize their authors, like politics, in the case of Zalamea or Adriana Espinoza who makes portraits of disappeared people. Rafael Dussan and Daniel Winograd wonder about eroticism. There is also abstract art with Edgar Álvarez, the rare expressionist humor of Loochkartt, or a mystical theme in the cases of Carlos Santa and David Manzur. A varied palette of authors who express their vision of the world from painting and drawing in films.

Rare opportunity to watch this film (perhaps for the first time in Scotland) on a big screen and with Carlos himself present in the room.
