El Salvador: so far from Hollywood, but ever so close to reality. That’s why the Ana Gomez Cultural Collective and the Mission Cultural Center have teamed up to produce the Inaugural San Francisco – El Salvador Film and Video Festival. Because el Pulgaricito (as El Salvador is affectionately known) might be small in size, but it’s got big history-and talented film and video-makers to make sense of it all. Join us for three days… packed with documentaries, shorts, and animation – all from Salvadoran directors.

El Salvador: tan lejos de Hollywood, pero tan cerca a la realidad. Por eso el Colectivo Cultural Ana Gomez y el Centro Cultural de la Misión se unen para celebrar el primer festival de cine y video Salvadoreño en San Francisco.
Por el Pulgarcito es pequeño, pero su historia es grande– y tiene talentosos cineastas para hacernos entenderlo. Disfrute tres días repletos de documentales, cortometrajes, y animación — todo hecho por directores salvadoreños.

POST TV – Lo-Fi for the Eyes | November 4th at International Rome Film Festival

English version below

Nell’ultimo biennio una nuova generazione di artisti statunitensi ed europei ha coniato un inedito linguaggio visivo a cavallo tra l’era di internet, memorie TV, e una sbiadita nostalgia per un futuro mai arrivato.

Sono artisti espressione di un underground che ama flirtare con media e contesti diversi (musica, visual arts, manufatti do-it-yourself, performance) e che ricorrono, per precisa scelta estetica, alla cosiddetta “bassa fedeltà” (lo-fi): immagini sgranate, riciclo di materiali di scarto, tecnologie desuete che vanno dal VHS alla computer graphics dei primordi, senza ovviamente contare i campionamenti assortiti pescati tra gli archivi dei broadcasters degli anni ’80 e ’90.
