FILMS BY ELENA DUQUE

Sunday, February 23 at 8 PM

Doors 7:30 pm; $5 admission                                                                                                                                               

Co-Presented with LA OLA. The Spanish-Venezuelan Elena Duque has been making (mostly) animated films for the last ten years. A discontinuous line interrupted by her work as a film writer and programmer, and for several changes of location. In this presentation we will discover her works, preceded by a short illustrated talk in which she will explain who she is and why she makes films: the DIY inspiration from zine culture, how she learn to animate by herself, her drive for making personal films and her take on experimental animation, among many other things. Then we will see her films, most of them around the idea of home and belonging, with different and playful takes on animation techniques and ideas. Finally, we will see a selection of commissions. A colorful and varied joyride, a delightful tutti frutti of friendly films (some of them in super 8), a feast of physical and emotional textures in which melancholy and sense of humor collide.
