The fact that something as ingenuous as a wrist recortable, or so empty
of content as a color role piece, they can be manipulated of such form that come
they transmit a message, is a fascinating magical play results. The animation is
a so much complex trick in its elaboration as in its form, therefore covers all the
artistic branches in a single format.Since the plastic arts to the music, passing for
the literature and the photography: all aforesaid by means of the film language.
It seems very natural to pass from the drawing to the scenography, and from there
to animation film(since the Czech master Svankmayer al south african genius
Kentringe continued this process)
The desheredados treats the theme of the solitude by means of recortables,
roles and photographs colored.The personages swarm for a strange island in which
Mostaza, a 9-year-old girl, has sank.Following her steps, we find that the fear to the
others, inherent in the human beings, is seen also increased by the mechanisms of
the progress era: the island is setting of nuclear tests. Oberón, its only inhabitant
lives absent to what happens in his land but subdued to it.
The especial colaboration of the wellknown composer Julio De La Rosa
(See BIO in everlastingrecords.com ) was quite important for this project.
He has created an original and expresive Sound track using human voices as
unique instrument. In Malaga de Jury gave the prizes to the best animation film
"Because of the freshness and originallity using the animation tecniques"
