Códec International Festival for Experimental Film & Video

https://kinefilmproject.wixsite.com/experimental/codec-2018
The International Festival of Experimental and Video Film was born in 2015, recently linked to KINÉ Experimental and Art Films, to strengthen the production, diffusion and exhibition of audiovisual media.
It is dedicated to reflect on the experimentation of the moving image and the sound in its different forms for social transformation and the collective between visual culture.
CODEC is to communicate and change information through sight and hearing, it is a universal code of free expression.
This programming is composed of elements of the individual, to show us his panorama, questioning the possibilities of the decomposition, vision, memory, movement, corporeal, provocation, abstract, exploration,plasticity, political, humanity, the place where we are now … risky proposals and avant-garde, outside the commercial cinema. Connect with the world and be able to circulate inside a cinematographic deconstruction.
”De-Construcciónes” is an eclectic show that reaffirms its mission to spread an unconventional cinema, with a national and international perspective.

WOW Mexico
Curatorial statement:
We are all in search of something, material or immaterial, the need to express ourselves to question or convey a sensation at the moment, a sound, a feeling, an emptiness, memories either through.
The memory and the body or simply appropriating something that you love and turning it into something.

name: Sergio Hibrain Bañuelos
San Pedro: el Libre / 2015 / 8:51 / México
Searching contrast environments in sound, from the last free river of Mexico to the devastating industry
that increasingly threatens our natural resources.
2.
name: Adán Salvatierra
Narké / 2015 / 3:15 / México
Starting from narcolepsy and hypnagogic and hypnopompic imagery, I experiment with body action, chance
and wandering as a possibility esthetic.
The actions are carried out according to my requests, seeking to bring to the limit of their physical
capacities a body that does not belong to me, Where images and sounds are captured according to my
instincts.
3.
name: Juan Pablo Romo ÁLvarez
Postdata / 2016 / 7:00 / México
Photography as a device that activates the memory and the memory we have of absent.
Is an exercise of re appropriation of portraits of people who have disappeared and through photography
and text evokes his presence.
4.
name: Erick Tapia
TERRITORIUM / 2016 / 3:00 / México
[ Territory ] of land , water and space , which belongs to a person.
[ Territory ] area or region of the human body irrigated by an artery or supplied by a nerve.
TERRITORIUM or territory is the limited space where different people lived , interconnected with the site.
5.
name: Julio Valdez
Sickness / 2016 / 7:00 / México
This attempt of fragmented journey into the interior of the human body, was taken from several vascular
procedures during the period of two years from different hospitals in the city of Mexicali.
