  • Ben Rivers

    Ben Rivers studied Fine Art at Falmouth School of Art, initially in sculpture before moving into photography and super8 film. After his degree he taught himself 16mm filmmaking and hand-processing. His practice as a filmmaker treads a line between documentary and fiction. Often following and filming people who have in some way separated themselves from society, the raw film footage provides Rivers with a starting point for creating oblique narratives imagining alternative existences in marginal worlds. He is the recipient of numerous prizes including: FIPRESCI International Critics Prize, 68th Venice Film Festival for his first feature film Two Years At Sea; the Baloise Art Prize, Art Basel 42, 2011; twice winner of the Tiger Award for Short film at Rotterdam IFF; Paul Hamlyn Foundation Award for Artists, 2010.

  • Héctor y Nico Iglesias

    Yugen Kala (Héctor y Nico Iglesias) son dos jóvenes músicos y productores de Vigo. Comenzaron a gatear en el estudio de grabación de su padre, y habiendo crecido entre mesas de mezclas, sintes e instrumentos, no es de extrañar su temprana y enorme pasión por la música. Publicaron su primer LP, ‘Nothing is Original’, en febrero de 2020, con tan solo 16 años. El disco es un rotundo tratado de electrónica exploratoria, radical, oscura y a la vez juguetona, que bebe de innumerables fuentes y que recibió reseñas entusiastas de medios especializados: Paralelo 3,
    Lapsus o Siglo 21 de Radio 3, Mondo Sonoro, o Metal Magazine.
