Description

Panel 8 Intermedial Documentaries in Latin America (Chair David Foster, Venue Bob Kayley) Theatre - Paul Merchant, University of Bristol

Cecilia Vicuña’s film Kon Kon (2010), a ‘documentary poem’, is a reflection on the director’s own intermedial artistic practice, which ranges from poetry to landscape art. It is also an exploration of ancient oral and musical traditions of Concón, a town on Chile’s central coast where Vicuña began her artistic development, and a lament for their disappearance.
