For LSFF 2021’s Platform showcase, we’re excited to screen the hallucinatory, kaleidoscopic works of Colectivo Los Ingrávidos.


Since forming in Tehuacán, Mexico in 2011, the collective have anonymously produced and disseminated over 300 audio-visual works, spanning form from essay films, found-footage reconstruction, feverish shamanistic incantations and charged acts of political resistance.


Synthesising documentary footage with playful abstraction, their art-making concerns itself with the need to overthrow dominant audio-visual aesthetics of corporatist TV and cinema, scrutinising its ideological ties to state-sanctioned violence, femicide and ethnic cleansing. 


Their varied style and radical sense of purpose offers up both the poetic and the sublime, creating violent, hypnotic beauty out of eroded celluloid and flickering pixels.


Programmed by Tom Grimshaw. 68’


Presented in association with Light Cone. Platform is an annual strand committed to spotlighting contemporary artist filmmakers working in unconventional ways across mediums.


This programme contains oral testimonies of violence and trauma, and flashing images.


Subtitles are provided with thanks to our partnership with Subly.

KRISTALLNACHT


The name Kristallnacht ("Crystal Night") comes from the shards of broken glass that littered the streets after the windows of Jewish-owned stores, buildings and synagogues were smashed. Brief glimpses of an infamous night.
