LIFT co-presents Of Differences, Lineages, and Belongings 
at 2020 aluCine Latin Film + Media Arts Festival

A correlation of feminist forces that are constantly structured and restructured. An incessant becoming (transformation). Video, celluloid and performance become resilient matter, shaped by the sensibility of eleven Latin American women artists and filmmakers who interweave, disorder and alter their elements. In these thirteen works, they invite us to doubt through image and sound, question what they represent, and look beyond their surface. Through performance, animations, a letter, found footage, and music video, this program’s works celebrate the political questioning from a constitutive OTHER within a HETEROGENEOUS field. HETERO questions from/of the other, from the difference. GEN brings to light, origin lineage. EO belonging. The body is central to convey tactile memories encoded in affects, the touch, and smell more than vision, an invitation to look together, and touch together from the perspectives of multiple differences.
