Colectivo Los Ingrávidos is a collective of filmmakers and activists mainly based in and around Mexico City. Their work is characterized by both radical form work and a direct response to the political turbulence, the violence and the corruption that is a highly tangible reality in Mexican society. Mass disappearances, political and military corruption and feminine cleansing - femicide - are some subjects that the collective stays with.
In a work form that combines elements from the 60's avant-garde film (16mm film, hand-held camera, clipping directly into the camera, etc.), mainly in its North American vintage, the radical currents of filmmakers and film collectors that originated in Latin America in the second half of the 6th The century, plus a tangible hearing for contemporary political turbulence, succeeds Colectivo Los Ingrávidos to generate new energy and agitatory resonance which forces questions about what a politically powerful film can be today.
We show a selection of the collective's extensive work, and the display is about 70 minutes. One of the collective representatives will be present for discussion and questions.
