Inner Worlds and Soft Landings: The Films of Cecilia Araneda

Fri, Feb 9 / 7 pm
Introduction and Q&A with Cecilia Araneda by Teddy Zegeye-Gebrehiwot.

Cecilia Araneda is the recipient of the WFG’s 2017 Manitoba Film Hothouse Award. The award will support Araneda in her self-directed research and development work for her process-based film practice, which is strongly rooted in analogue experimentation. So far, Araneda has completed 14 remarkable short films and videos many of which have won awards and screened in festivals, curated programs and art house cinemas internationally. In 2005, Araneda founded, together with filmmaker Solomon Nagler, the WNDX Festival of Moving Image, which has since become one of Canada’s most highly regarded experimental film festivals. In 2017, she was the recipient of the inaugural LIFT: Liaison of Independent Filmmakers of Toronto Roberto Ariganello Award, supporting the work of an established Canadian artist working with analogue forms. In 2017, she was the recipient of an international curatorial research award from the Canada Council for the Arts to support her study of artist-driven Mapuche filmmaking practices.

Teddy is a documentary filmmaker who focuses on oppression and exploitation and works part time at the Centre for Creative Writing and Oral Culture at the University of Manitoba. 

Halley’s Comet / 2005, Canada, 12 min / As she walks through the fragments of her life, a woman recalls a dying childhood friend’s dream to watch Halley’s Comet pass by the earth.

Memory / 2002, Canada, 3:57 min / A woman sleeps on her bed of memories, dreaming of precious childhood moments. In her subconscious mind, she travels back to the present again, where these memories transform themselves into a faded photography – isolated and alone, and something that blows with the wind. Memory was processed and painted by hand.

Imprint / 2007, Canada, 5:30 min / The transient connection of two, leaves a lingering memory on one. Imprint is a hand-crafted film, with many sections processed, coloured and contact-printed by hand.

What Comes Between / 2009, Canada, 5:38 min / An examination of personal memory and loss rooted in the filmmaker’s birth place – Chile – and her departure from that country long ago. The work is a collage film created with found footage from personal and historic sources, and original hand printed and tinted footage.

Cumbia 42 / 2014, Canada, 4:34 min / A music video for Cumbia 42 by Norte Tropical (Rodrigo Muñoz and Jim Hiscott).

Presque Vu / 2013, Canada, 4:13 min / Lush hand-crafted film footage and HD images combine to reveal a mysterious past through remnants of a memory that is almost remembered, but which never fully develops. A girl speaks, but her words cannot be understood.

Before / 2016, Canada, 3:35 min / With intricate hand-printed 16 mm footage, Before is a dark ode to the possibility and impossibility of love. It reflects on time, inner worlds and soft landings we find in desolate moments in life.

The Space Shuttle Challenger / 2017, Canada, 9:34 min / Through found footage, The Space Shuttle Challenger entwines the Challenger disaster, Guantanamo Bay, Chile’s coup d’état and the experience of being sixteen. It reflects on the personal impact of large events in world history and small moments of hope that survive.
