VideoSur III: Experimental Shorts from Argentina, Chile, and Brazil by various artists (2010, approx 90 min.). Inspired by the spirit of exchange in the Americas, DiscordiaFilms’ VideoSur programs present Latin American video art to US audiences. VideoSur III explores how South American artists use digital media to communicate their experience of urban environments. Whether working in their cities of origin, travel destinations or temporary places residence, these artists comment on the transitory and connective realities of Latin American communities. Fully immersed in a globalized, visual culture, the videos highlight artists’ unique perspectives and creative approaches, often made necessary by a lack of resources. Featuring work in animation, stop-motion and video-performance, VideoSur III depicts vast cityscapes, micro-perspectives of city life, and the rapid exchanges that result from migration. Presented by DiscordiaFilms and the Ruth and Carl J. Shapiro Film Program at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, in partnership with Villa Victoria Center for the Arts. VideoSur III is curated by Liz Munsell of DiscordiaFilms and Mauricio Román of Espacio G.
