Edwin Rostron is one of the most interesting British experimental animators of the moment. His films work mainly with drawings, with non-predetermined animation processes that allow the unconscious and surprise to enter. His personal graphic style merges with imagery and found sounds, creating a unique and non-transferable universe. In this session we will see a representative selection of his personal work, from an initial piece made at the university to his most recent films.
Eugeni Bonet (Barcelona, 1954) is a scholar & specialist in avant-garde cinema, video creation and electronic arts. Since the mid-1970s, he has been working on these disciplines both from a theoretical and from a practical perspective. Throughout his long career he has interspersed programming, curating and writing - Spanish experimental cinema, the beginnings of video art, calculated cinema, film (de)montage, lettrist cinema, etc. - with the production of films and videos of his own.
