Los Hijos Film Collective

Film Collective: Seminars, Talk, and Workshops
Tuesday, March 12, 2024
4:00-7:00 PM

Film collective Los hijos was founded in 2008. Their radical forms of filmic experimentation combined video art, ethnography, and avant-garde cinema to deconstruct established and hegemonic narratives about Spanish identity and history. In films like Los materiales (2009), Enero 2012 o el apoteosis de Isabel la Católica (2012) or Árboles (2013), Natalia Marín Sancho, Javier Fernández Vázquez, and Luis López Carrasco touch upon salient issues such as the Spanish colonial presence in Guinea, the legacies of the fascist dictatorship of Francisco Franco, and the widespread consequences of the social and economic crisis of 2008.

Please join us in a series of seminars, workshops, and lectures where Los hijos will reflect on how filmic experimentation can shed a light on colonial domination, political violence, social class discrimination, and racism in contemporary Spain. All events will be hybrid, by RSVP, and conducted in Spanish.
