‘Epidermis’ and ‘Political Brands, Empty words’, at IDFA

by rubendiaz

Rocío Trejo Zamorano and Alfonso Alcalá Olmo participated a workshop on political video remix produced by ZEMOS98 in the Andalusian Center of Contemporary Arts, in Sevilla, in March 2011.

As a result they produced two political remix videos: ‘Epidermis‘ and ‘Political Brands, Empty words‘.

These two videos, together with other short films from Turkey, Poland, England and Holland, will be screened prior to long documentaries in the main program of IDFA.

Congratulations to Rocío and Alfonso!

As we already publiched, Felipe and Pablo are attending to the IDFAcademy next to 10 DIY Doc Next media makers.

And now we can say that Rocío and Alfonso’s works are part of the following Doc Next films which have been selected for screening in the main IDFA program:

* Brothers by Emi Mazurkiewicz (19) from Poland. A short film capturing the love, life and imagination of two young brothers.
* I’m looking for Someone by Janusz Kojro (26) from Poland. Polish Internet portals: in a city the size of Warsaw, a reunion of two bystanders statistically happens once only in 17 years.
* Epidermis by Alfonso Alcalá Olmo (27) fom Spain. Video dedicated to all the happy owners of a multiple, alternative and fragmented beauty that is different from the one dictating our markets.
* Laundrette by Alex Neville (21) from the UK. A short contemplative documentary revolving around the late night inhabitants of a launderette. (‘Best Documentary’ BFI Futures Film Festival 2011,
’Official Selection’ Edinburgh International Film Festival 2010,

* Wires by Jacob Dwyer (23) from the UK. A man is trying to collect his memory on a rooftop via a wire full of photographs of different places. Did the photographs prompt his memory or become his memory?

Besides, we’ll have the Doc Next Mini Cinema: we screen the best of the Doc Next Media Collection in ongoing and thematic video shows, in a mini cinema at the Rembrandtsplein at the heart of the festival (free entrance).

    You actually make it appear so easy with your presentation however I find this topic to be really one thing that I feel I would by no means understand.
    It kind of feels too complicated and very extensive for me.

    I am looking forward on your next post, I’ll attempt to get the dangle of it!
