Uruguayan visual artist, film historian, and curator Angela Lòpez
Ruiz presents “*Archeology of the Image”*, a review of the history of
Uruguayan cinema between the 20s and the 70s. Ruiz’s research makes
connections between cinema and other artistic disciplines during the modern
age, and how these “blank pages” have had their effect on contemporary
thinking. The evenings program will be divided into two parts showcasing
Uruguayan experimental cinema; the first looking at historical films and the
second contemporary pieces. Following this will be a panel discussion with
Lòpez Ruiz, Bill Brand, and Mark Street.

Lòpez Ruiz will also present the 1958 short *Color *by Lidia García
Millán as part of the Orphan Film
closing program on Saturday evening, April 10: Around the World Time Travel
Diary (1897 – 2010).

This program is presented with CINEMA TROPICAL<http://www.cinematropical.com/>
