BIOGRAPHY
Duo Strangloscope’s films have been always focused entirely on movement, rhythm, and composition, and we have abandoned the focus on narrative. It is fraught with conscious ambiguities, encourages multiple interpretations, and marshals paradoxical and contradictory techniques and subject-matter to create a work that requires the active participation of the viewer.
Experimental films are films that push the boundaries of conventional film making. The experimental aspect could be new and different ways of working with the camera, using lighting, playing with audio effects, scripting or even acting. We started developing our own experimental films because of our interest in working with digital forms, trying to give them some texture by increasing the use of pixels, enlarging the images in its own digital materiality and then mixing digital with films in order to create a mutant skin.

Athanasia (2017)

Throughout its thirteen years of history, MARFICI became a space for the diffusion of unique cinematographic works, which are not distributed through the commercial cinema circuit of the country, but which offer quality of performance, a vision of language Audiovisual or different from the efforts of its filmmakers to show the public a reality that would normally go unnoticed.

Marfici XIII

The Marplatenses find in the MARFICI a screen in which to access all those films that are not normally projected in the city; A window that opens to different cultures and ways of life, harsh everyday realities, inspiring life stories, profiles of outstanding artists, historical documentaries or that address the most important issues of the day.

A multidisciplinary team works throughout the year to bring Marplatense cinemas more than 300 hours of independent cinema that is renewed every year, and allows directors from around the world to project their films in Mar del Plata.

Athanasia (2017) | 14th Muestra De Cine de Lavapiés (Madrid, Spain)

So glad that film “Athanasia” in collaboration with Musician Rey Eisen is selected at the 14th Muestra De Cine de Lavapiés from 23rd of June to 2nd of July 2017 (Madrid, Spain).

 

 

The “Muestra De Cine de Lavapiés” is an event organized by a group of neighbors. A week of projections that is celebrated at the beginning of each summer in diverse spaces of the neighborhood. We like to take the cinema to the street. In this project nobody charges, nobody pays, we bet because the desire flows; not the money. A third and a half of the program of the show are integrated works that come to us through this annual call we now launch. We call on all friendly tribes to send us free audiovisual works: experimental pieces, shorts, menhirs, tasty stories, boars, insurgent documentaries, pirate ships and even bards.
