Ismo Ismo Ismo
Los Angeles Filmforum is pleased to inaugurate Ismo Ism Ismo: Cine Experimental en América Latina (Ism Ism Ism: Experimental Film in Latin America), a research project funded by the Getty Foundation's Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA research initiative. In addition to our Los Angeles team, Filmforum is currently collaborating with scholars and curators in Colombia, Argentina, Brazil, Uruguay, Mexico, Ecuador, San Francisco and Switzerland.
Unprecedented in the Los Angeles area, Filmforum's project will facilitate dialogues amongst various Latin American cinemas to foreground how technology, formal techniques and theoretical questions have traveled among filmmakers and countries. By tracing the web of connections between Latin American cinemas, the fine arts, documentary, Hollywood and various avant-gardes, it will elaborate upon and challenge existing histories of avant-garde film and national histories of Latin American Cinema.
Check back as this exciting effort progresses.
