Meet new faces of Chilean audiovisual

María Ignacia Hargreaves and Guillermo Arias are co-directors of Ánima del amanecer, a short stop motion film by TrashTower that was selected during June at the SMOF Stop Motion Our Fest in Buenos Aires.

A story inspired by Plato’s “Allegory of the Cavern” and reflection on imposed reality versus reality validated by one’s own emotional and sensory experience.

Both directors know each other from collaborating with the production company Diluvio. During their career they have experimented with outdoor stop motion animation, graffiti, waste collection, large-scale puppet construction, timelapse, claymation and digital animation, in addition to working with prominent animation directors such as Cristóbal León , Joaquin Cociña, Niles Atallah and Ari Aster.

Together they discover the Trash Motion, a term they coin to define animation with waste and recycling. Their work consists of disused elements and scrap and in this way, taking advantage of the things that have at their disposal, propose to create fiction in a sustainable way.
