Hothouse 10: September 8 — November 28, 2014

Benjamin Mugica

Voicemails get lost and found in space in this thoughtful commentary on the fractured act of communication and the spaces between people trying to express themselves.

Inspired by found sound of missed voicemails, animated in inky black and electric colour, and produced as part of the 10th edition of the NFB’s Hothouse apprenticeship, in collaboration with the Mexican Film Institute.

As a form of cinema, animation offers him a platform for all the conceptual and tangible applications of time. His previous films include Error en Uso (2011) and Sonidos Movimiento (2011).
