THE BEST OF PUNTO Y RAYA FESTIVAL 2016: ABSTRACT ART IN MOTION
Thursday, March 23 at 8 PM
Punto y Raya (Dot & Line), dubbed ’the most abstract festival in the world’ by the Japanese press, explores experimental narrative expressions in filmmaking and live cinema through the use of pure Form, Color, Motion and Sound, avoiding direct representation. This renders it universal and timeless. Since its launch in 2007, Punto y Raya aims to overcome intercultural barriers and bring together people from all over the world under the motto ‘Back to basics’.
The collection comprises the finalist and awarded films in their sixth installment, which took place in October 2016 at ZKM Karlsruhe, Germany. Presented in conjunction with iota center. FESTIVAL DIRECTOR NOEL PALAZZO IN ATTENDANCE!
