EXcinema presents our 4th annual Exquisite Corpse Cinema, The Spaces Between Countries: Mexico & USA. For this edition we asked twenty filmmakers, half from Mexico, half from the US and a few who live, or lived in both to make short films that will connect exquisite corpse style into one feature length film. Each filmmaker addresses life in their surroundings and many include events of the past year. For instance there’s crowds on both US coasts under the path of the eclipse, independent vendors making tortillas and thread from scratch, a beach full of pelicans, the aftermath of earthquakes in Mexico, and hurricanes and forest fires in the US. There’s police in the streets, resistance marches, real estate scammers, and there’s the housing crisis affecting most of us. This and much more. For more information on how the corpse is made check out the Exquisite Corpse Cinema link on our blog.
Made with the support of 4Culture.
