Movimientos brings together feature and short length films—from across the Americas, Turtle Island and Abya Yala—which explore movement through the lens of dance and music, highlighting the socio-politically transformative power of these cultural practices. Highly creative and vividly diverse in their cinematic production, these works centre Indigenous and Afro traditions and spotlight contemporary expressions. The films invite us to contemplate our identities, emotional and physical responses, relationships with the land, and spatial engagements with the world around us.
Curated by Adriana Contreras and Sonia Medel
