Join us afterwards for a short Q&A with the filmmaker.

Agnès Hayden (b. 2000, Madrid) is a filmmaker, visual and musical artist. She is interested in the corporeal aspect of the body and the machine; the materialization of ideas in film, tangible and attainable, and the proximity to the machine used—as a haptic device—to carry out the task. The synergy between camera and human has led her to investigate the possibilities it offers; multi-expositions in diverse formats (16mm and Super 8mm), the use of prisms in contact with the camera lens, chemical reactions in conventional and unconventional development (homemade emulsions, push process, cyanotype, tinting, toning…) in various filmic and photographic formats. She began her film studies at the Escuela de Cinematografía y del Audiovisual de la Comunidad de Madrid (ECAM). She then specialized in Cinematography Direction at the Cinema Institute of Madrid, where she investigated the possibilities of photography in the medium, and took specialized workshops in color post-production in digital video at Escuela Superior de Formación Audiovisual, Animación 3D y Nuevas Tecnologías (CEV). This year she studied a master’s degree at laboratorio AudioVisual (LAV), which focuses on analog and experimental cinema.

This event is part of Agnès Hayden’s residency and is made possible in part through support from (S8) Mostra de Cinema Periférico and the Acción Cultural Española (AC/E).
