Join us online on Thursday, March 24, 2022 at 6:00pm ET to see a presentation by the Spanish filmmaker Laura Moreno Bueno. This presentation follows shortly after her residency in the fifth edition of the BAICC Residencias Artísticas Internacionales de Creacion Cinematográfica, a collaboration between the (S8) Mostra Internacional de Cinema Periférico, Acción Cultural Española (AC/E) and the Liaison of Independent Filmmakers of Toronto (LIFT). The residency supports the making of a new analogue film-based work by creators born or living in Spain. The work made in the residency will premiere at the next iteration of the S8 Mostra de Cinema Periférico, held during the first week of June 2022 in A Coruña, Spain.
Moreno Bueno will discuss her work in progress The Sound of Images, and its relation to her work as a whole. The piece consists of developing a 16mm film performance that uses photosensitive microphones to create a soundtrack out of the play of colour and shadow that falls upon the screen, generating a synesthetic experience. Her project explores the transfiguration of the colours of the city into sounds, by discovering what Toronto sounds like using the eyes instead of the ears.

Laura Moreno Bueno (1995, Spain) creates films and audiovisual video installations. She studied at the Elias Querejeta Zine Eskola (EQZE) in San Sebastián. She researches the transformation of audio-visual codes from digital and analog media. Her work has explored the limits of landscape, the relationship between the body and the camera and the body as a form of creation/communication. In 2021, she began The Sound of Images at the Hangar-Casa Velázquez residency, where she fabricated photosensitive microphones that convert light into sound. https://lauramorenobueno.com
