ANIMAL FILMS

Stories from another realm

We are a Medellín company founded in 2017 by Edna Sierra and Wilson Arango. A team of passionate artists and filmmakers, with high human, academic, and technical training. We are dedicated to the production, realization, and distribution of cinematographic, interactive, immersive, and transmedia content, with high standards of narrative and aesthetic quality.

 

We are focused on our mission to help people make the world a better place and we believe that the way to do it is through our work. In recent years we have produced various audiovisual works of social impact, which have obtained gratifying national and international recognition, by being premiered and awarded at prestigious festivals, such as Mar del Plata, Havana, and Bussan, among others.

Documentary, 14 min, B / N, 2016.

Teresita Gaviria is a mother who, after the disappearance of her son, tirelessly searches for the truth that will allow her to restore her life and overcome the pain, along with hundreds of Colombian mothers who are victims of violence.

INVISIBLE LINES

Documentary, 27 min, B / W, 2020

Our territory is delimited by borders, invisible lines that indicate the limits. In certain peripheral neighborhoods of Medellín (Colombia), groups outside the law have for years drawn new territories, displacing the civilian population from their homes. This filmic essay investigates those "other" territories in search of those people who resist moving from their place.

ROUTE 60

Afiche RUTA 60 - V3_baja.jpg

Documentary, 27 min, Color, 2018

Between 1990 and 2000, Route 60 that connects Medellín with Bogotá became a scene of terror and death. Armed groups disputed the area. Although many things have changed today, fear is still present among the population and the atrocious events remain hidden.

PEACEFUL

Afiches_películas_-_ANIMAL_FILMS_-_V12

Documentary, 16 min, color, 2020

The Atrato River, the largest tributary of the Colombian Pacific, is in danger. The thirst for gold of humans eats it vertiginously from the inside out. Although the environmental damage is evident, many of the inhabitants of the area see mining as the only solution to the problems of poverty in the region. PACIFIC, is an approach from a distance, to a vast and complex territory, whose name, in light of these images, feels ironic.

NO AIR / NO AIR

Postal_afiche Noair 2018.jpg

Experimental Found Footage, 4 min, color, 2017.

Without air, it creates a symbiosis between analog material found in 35 mm and images in digital format, which allow the construction of a fragmented and poetic image of the mind of a woman who ends in chaos on the happiest day of her life.

I have worked in a wide range of art and culture, research-creation, pedagogical and social projects, as well as in the creation of multiple film and video art projects. On several occasions I have been a winner of incentives for artistic and cinematographic creation. My audiovisual works have been presented in more than 45 festivals around the world. I love cinema, painting and experimenting with new technologies. I enjoy creating and working with people who share my passion for film and art.
