Luis Macías is an artist, filmmaker, image recycler and teacher specializing in experimental cinema. His work with 8mm, Super 8 and 16mm film are conceived as Expanded Cinema Performances. His artistic concerns focus on two points: the physical work on film and film recycling and re-invention of new relationships between moving images.
Adriana Vila Guevara is an anthropologist and filmmaker. She has performed in film and art centers with multiple Super8 and 16mm projectors, has worked with different experimental musicians on live concerts and live projections, documentaries, as well as film and video installations.
