So the screening of films from Buenos Aires will present the oeuvres of the artists who are currently based in the capital of Argentina even when they’re coming from different places of Latin America and beyond. The experimental film scene is a part of the widest alternative art scene which during the time after economical, social and political crisis in Argentina (1999-2002) figure out the surviving strategy in such situation for the artistic activities. The other part of the entire scene are the different DIY branches from music, theater to contemporary video-art and performance.

“The creative act of contemporary experimental cinema in Buenos Aires is the aesthetic and existential challenge, so it keeps the traces of the contemporaneity. The methods of working with the film the ones like a looping, recycling of footage and projection and performance in the shared personal space all of them are based on the inspiration of the moment related to contemporaneity which happened in total collaboration under conditions of reduced necessities of the creativity.“ - Georgy Bagdasarov and Alexandra Moralesova, curators
