Longas x Curto

For this edition, Curtocircuíto has programmed the first or second feature films of filmmakers who have been growing by our side for many years now. It has been ten years already since Curtocircuíto exhibited a piece by Lois Patiño for the first time. Likewise, our festival held the first retrospective of Jessica Sarah Rinland’s work three editions ago already. Moreover, Jessica had participated in our Official Section one year earlier, and was eventually chosen as winner. Also, Curtocircuíto exhibited, very successfully, the first short films by Colombian Camilo Restrepo, who will be in Santiago for the third time. In the case of Oskar Alegria, while his previous works did not form part of our programmes, he did collaborate closely with Curtocircuíto as director of the Punto de Vista Festival. All these people are filmmakers who have earned ample international recognition.

With an elephant's ivory tusk as the protagonist, Those That, at a Distance, Resemble Another meditates upon the endless tactility of museological and ecological conservation, inviting reflection upon forms of representation, replicas, and embodiments of various materials, disciplines, and institutions.
