For this week’s Books In Motion we bring you a short stop-animation from Cristóbal León Dooner, Joaquín Cociña, and Niles Atallah. Niles worked at Logos years ago, and has since moved to Chile where he has become a documentary film maker and translator. His documentary film Memoria Desierta, about the Pinochet era prison camp in Chacabuco, Chile, was screened at the Desert Nights International Film Festival in Rome, Italy. During his time in Santa Cruz, he filmed a documentary on local bluesman Robert Lowry, Journey South.
Lucia is a short film made in 2007 and was recently used in a video installation called Lucia, Luis and the Wolf. Here is what the Diluvio Gallery has to say about the installation:
Lucía, Luis y el lobo (Lucia, Luis and the Wolf) is a video installation in “Sala Cero” on the 2nd floor of Galería Animal (Animal Gallery) in Santiago, Chile. The exhibition is made up of the short films Lucía and Luis that are projected on a wall in the gallery as well as a series of other short animations shown on small screens in a pile of dirt and furniture. The exhibition closes the first stage of an animation project formed by Atallah, Cociña and León. The next stage will be a feature film called La casa lobo (The Wolf House), preparations for the film will start later this year.
So, without further ado…. Lucia and Luis:
