From Doodles to Pixels is a coproduction of the CCCB and AC/E that brings together a selection of films animated using diverse techniques that represent turbulent times ranging from the early twentieth century to the present day. It features recurring themes such as links with the world of comic books, reflections of political concerns and dialogue with the visual arts.
The film programme, curated by Carolina López, charts a course through a selection of the landmark works of Spanish animation of all times. The cycle includes historic films (from 1908 to the end of the dictatorship in 1975) and contemporary shorts (from 1975 to the present day). This has involved the restoration and digitization of works that were previously “invisible” because of their condition or the difficulty of accessing them, using the best possible materials in each case.
The travelling film programme includes 63 works by different filmmakers, plus a selection of 17 commercials by Estudios Moro, and comprises six sessions of short films, with an approximate duration of 70 minutes and two sessions of feature films. The works will be screened in digital video format. The selection includes works by artists such as Segundo de Chomón, Josep Escobar, Francisco Macián, José Luis Moro, Jordi Amorós, Tomàs Bases, Raúl García, Juan Pablo Etcheverry, Isabel Herguera, Javier Mariscal, Anna Solanas, Marc Riba, Alberto Vázquez, Pedro Rivero, Izibene Oñederra, Nicolai Troshinsky and Rocío Álvarez, among many others.
All the screenings will be held at the CCCB auditorium, at 19 h. Free entrance.
