People who have saved this event:


The film series Ism, Ism, Ism: Experimental Cinema in Latin America spotlights experimental time-based media made by Latin American artists and in Latin America during the 20th century, including small-gauge films, recorded performances, ethnographic works, and rigorous formal experiments.


 Ism, Ism, Ism is intended to expand the understanding of Latin American experimental cinema to include key works from Argentina, Chile, Colombia, Cuba, Ecuador, Peru, Puerto Rico, and Venezuela, and movements including the social documentaries of El Centro Experimental de la Universidad de Chile and the punk films of Mexico’s Superocheros. Presented at theaters, partner museums, and community spaces throughout Los Angeles, the programs will offer a unique opportunity for audiences to learn about the history, aesthetics, and circulation of independent and experimental filmmaking in the Americas and to see works largely unknown in the United States.
