Non-competitive section dedicated to Galician filmmakers who have a consistent and personal work. 

Enar de Dios Rodríguez (Spain, 1986) is a visual artist whose interdisciplinary work includes video, photography and installations. In her artistic practice the selective process of existing visual and textual material serves as a starting point for an exploration of the poetic and its political applicability. Her last research-based projects reflect upon the production of space and its socio-political and environmental consequences. Her work has been exhibited in disparate places such as the Contemporary Jewish Museum (San Francisco), Project Space (Melbourne), the backpack of a friend, Kunsthalle (Vienna), the 45 Salón Nacional de Artistas (Bogotá) or in film festivals such as DokuFest (Prizren), or this human world (Vienna). She has been the recipient of several grants and awards such as the Pixel Bytes + Film Production Grant, the Murphy and Cadogan Contemporary Art Award or the DKV Álvarez Margaride Grant. She is founding collaborator of the science-art project SEEC Photography and member of The Golden Pixel Cooperative.

Fortress Europe - Promotional Video belongs to a body of work that investigates the private industry that hides behind, and benefits from, the external borders of the European Union. This video has been put together exclusively with found footage from private companies promotional videos which, on the one hand, are funded by Frontex to develop products related to the border securitization and, on the other, are some of the largest arms manufacturers and exporters of Europe. Ultimately, Fortress Europe - Promotional Video is a visual poem that reveals the ideologies behind these businesses while reflecting upon issues such as current technologies of securitization, the production of space, and its consequences.

Made during the heyday of film theory’s infatuation with the textual aspects of the medium and of complex semiotic approaches to the language of cinema, this film is a text in which each shot is a single word, tightly-framed white letters against a black background. Snow manages to defamiliarize both film and language and enters the contemporary debate about film being a language or not.

This film will be screened without subtitles.
