WhatsApp Poster

Festival de Animacion ran from April to May 2020. It started as an initiative to connect with my nieces, confined in Madrid during the Pandemic. Lucia and Jazmin made a tutorial for a basic stop motion app. And this was passed onto older members in the family. During long weeks stuck inside in Argentina, Spain, the US, France and UK we created animations and screened them live on WhatsApp on Saturdays for the extended family to see. The festival proposed a space of togetherness, and grew to dilute distance; rearrange established family roles, dynamics and age group hierarchies. Overall, we created 50 animations!
