Town Talks: Expanded Cinema

About this event

BAVC Media and CiNEOLA are thrilled to co-present another Town Talk exploring expanded cinema, participatory storytelling, interactivity and questions of memory and belonging with filmmakers Rodrigo Reyes and Miguel Novelo. Town Talks is a virtual community conversation, convening mediamakers to break bread and exchange ideas.

Miguel Novelo is an experimental media artist, filmmaker, and cultural event creator from Yucatan, Mexico. He uses new media, interactivity, and expanded cinema to create immersive sound and expanded image experiences that generate platforms for participatory storytelling. His latest project, an interactive documentary called La Marea, is now showing on CiNEOLA.

Mexican director Rodrigo Reyes makes films deeply grounded in his identity as an immigrant artist, crafting a poetic gaze from the margins of both cultures, using striking imagery to portray the contradictory nature of our shared world, while revealing the potential for transformative change.
