Interacting with the world through the camera

Para todos los públicos
Ione Atenea

The filmmaker Ione Atenea will speak about her creative processes, which are part of her own experiences and close environment to approach the universal and to think about questions such as memory, the time lapse, death and identity.

It will be focused in her last film Los caballos mueren al amanecer (Horses Die at Sunrise), made from a first-person research with intuition as a guide and game as methodology. Ione will unravel how and why this journey was built by the remnant of lives with horses, between fantasy and real life.
