Receptions & Special Events
Join us for a stimulating screening of rarely seen expressive Colombian animation featuring powerful metaphors, surreal landscapes and haunting images. These groundbreaking experimental films utilize animation techniques ranging from rotoscoping to under-the-camera animation, capturing the imagination and challenging traditional concepts of cinema. A thought-provoking conversation will examine the role of art in the context of war and the role of the artist in politics. The discussion will feature Colombian filmmakers Cecilia TraslaviÃ±a and Carlos Santa; international media scholars Janeann Dill, Claudia Salamanca and Cristina Venegas; and USC student Juan Camilo GonzÃ¡lez.
Admission is free.
