Amanda Bonaiuto’s work contains strong autobiographical elements. Travels and memories, going back as far as childhood, have been an important source of inspiration for her film Batfish Soup. Bonaiuto’s tell the story of a dysfunctional family in a rhythmically floating way. Her poetic animations display an exquisite sense of composition; as in the case of calligraphy the empty space is as important as in the colored ones.
Ricard Carbonell’s works are characterized by quiet, almost meditative state. His film Patarei Prison is tied both to the strong narrative tradition and to the considerably conceptual tradition of the experimental film medium.
