Spanish animation and guest
Alexander McDonald, director
of the ANIMATION BREAKDOWN festival in Los Angeles, joins us in Portland along
with an exiled, delusional Spaniard — Francesc Xavier de Manuel Ruiz, former
curator of the Spanish animation fest, ANIMAC — to present an insane selection
of... Spanish. Contemporary. Animated. Shorts. ¡Olé!
A bilingual compendium of
animated "tapas" packed with spine-chilling fables, heart-warming
violence, and a pinch of synesthetic experimentalism. Want some samples?
Rejoice before the cutesy bear cubs of Alberto Vazquez in their hunt for
unicorn blood! Discover the doomed CGI chimeras of Guillermo Garcia Carsí, the
creator of Pocoyo! Witness a trio of cyber-tech apes in their battle against an
unscrupulous, fascist dictator! Experience a millennium of messed-up history
from the point-of-view of a stranded robo-alien! Locura Española is an
aphrodisiacal experience straight from the land of Spanish madmen!
