A for Ana Vaz
January 18 from 18:30
In collaboration with Valletta Contemporary, Kinemastik is curating several sessions of some of our favourite short film directors whose films have been shown in the past 14 editions of Kinemastik International Short Film Festival.
Ana Vaz (1986, Brasília) is an artist and filmmaker whose films, installations and performances explore complex relationships between environments, territories and hybrid histories pushing the boundaries of our perception. Assemblages of found and shot materials, her films combine ethnography and speculation in exploring the frictions and fictions imprinted upon situated spaces and their multiple inhabitants. Her films have been showed internationally in film festivals and institutions such as the Tate Modern, Palais de Tokyo, Jeu de Paume, LUX Moving Images, New York Film Festival, TIFF Wavelengths, BFI, Cinéma du Réel, TABAKALERA, Courtisane, amongst others. In 2015, she was the recipient of the Kazuko Trust Award presented by the Film Society of Lincoln Center in recognition of artistic excellence and innovation in her moving-image work.
This event has been made possible through a collaboration between Kinemastik and Valletta Contemporary.
Kinemastik is supported by the Malta Arts Council through the Cultural Partnership Agreement.
This project has been funded through the Voluntary Organisations Project Scheme managed by the Malta Council for the Voluntary Sector on behalf of Parliamentary Secretary for Youth, Sports and Voluntary Organisations within the Ministry for Education and Employment.
