A selection of short films, paying particular attention to female gazes and women directors from countries ranging from Mexico to Argentina, from Venezuela to Spain and from Colombia to Chile.

No conventional filmmaking will be found here. We take a look at the work of those filmmakers with a desire to see the world from a different perspective. These films pay particular attention to colour, sound, textures and the plastic side of the movies. From the urge to resist the repetitive proposition of commercial cinema to attempts to bring a more radical artistic approach to filmmaking. Using moving images to produce artworks, moving away from standard narrative structures, using found footage and playing with analogue materials in the same way a painter or sculptor would approach their creations.
