She Cuts: Talk with Ariadna Ribas and Ana Pfaff
Bodies in the Cutting Room
Dance, music and experimental film were some of the shared interests that brought Ariadna Ribas and Ana Pfaff together to set up the Dostopos collective over ten years ago.
After a decade as filmmakers working on joint projects closely linked to found footage and animated collage and, in parallel, developing their own careers as film editors, they realised how permeable their collective and individual work had been and how many of shared interests that had brought them together years before had sowed the seeds of what makes them film editors today.
In this session, they will talk about how their experience shapes how they approach images in the cutting room and how they relate to them, as well as the subtle, unexpected relationships that emerge during the process of editing images and sounds and the close ties that editors forge with the footage they work with.
Trinta lumes is being screened on 13 November in the CCCB Auditorium.
