Latitude stands for a range of exposures and acceptable error, freedom of action and the parallels that map a territory north and south of the equator. This program surveys experimental film and video from artists born or based in Mexico exploring the materiality of media, the social and political ramifications of precariousness, the obfuscation of memory and the evenness of urban landscapes. Different generations and artistic practices are convened to highlight Mexico’s local and global audiovisual imbrications. TRT: 105 minutes
Julian Etienne in attendance!

Juan Pablo González is a filmmaker whose work includes documentary, fiction and experimental films. His work has been shown in festivals such as IDFA, Cannes, Edinburgh, Full Frame, among others. Juan Pablo’s work explores memory, its mutability, and manifestations in everyday life. Part of his practice is also concerned with the reconfiguration of rural space in his home state of Jalisco.
