For LSFF 2021’s Platform showcase, we’re excited to screen the hallucinatory, kaleidoscopic works of Colectivo Los Ingrávidos.
Since forming in Tehuacán, Mexico in 2011, the collective have anonymously produced and disseminated over 300 audio-visual works, spanning form from essay films, found-footage reconstruction, feverish shamanistic incantations and charged acts of political resistance.
Both dizzying, kaleidoscopic prayer and a tenacious ode to Black selfhood, London Short Film Festival opens with the first UK presentation of HOWDOYOUSAYYAMINAFRICAN?'s 35-part experimental opera.
The collective, an evolving line up of poets and artists from across the world including composers Kelsey Lu and TV On The Radio's Kyp Malone, abstracts and reimagines opera in any traditional conception.
