From Doodles to Pixels. Over One Hundred Years of Spanish Animation

International touring cycle of animation film

The programme’s eight sessions offer a selection of Spanish animation of all times, giving visibility to the work of 70 authors, with more than 50 titles.

The selection, made by curator Carolina López, includes films by artistes such as Segundo de Chomón, Josep Escobar, Francisco Macián, José Luis Moro, Jordi Amorós, Tomàs Bases, Raúl García, Juan Pablo Etcheverry, Isabel Herguera, Javier Mariscal, Anna Solanas, Marc Riba, Alberto Vázquez, Pedro Rivero, Izibene Oñederra, Nicolai Troshinsky and Rocío Álvarez, plus many more.

It includes titles like Garbancito de la Mancha (Arturo Moreno, 1945), Europe’s first animated feature film in colour, and black and white adverts from the 1930s by Catalan artists such as Serra i Massana and Ferran. La Edad de Piedra (Gabriel Blanco, 1965), with drawings by Chumy Chúmez, the commercials of Estudios Moro, and Estela, a short film by Frederic Amat specially made for the occasion are some of the least known and most surprising pieces in the cycle.

Thanks to this programme, works have been restored and digitised that were previously “invisible” because of their condition or difficulty of accessing them, using the best possible materials in each case.
