|Building bridges based on the belief that film becomes art only when its materials are as inexpensive as pencil & paper. Cine Pobre Film Festival is the 100% cartel-free intersection of culture and capabilities.|
Made entirely by hand and animated without digital effects, "Greyhound Blues" explores themes of traveling and childhood while drawing from the visual mythology of 1950s roadside America -- especially where it overlaps with the American Southwest -- and the washed out, photocopied look of early science fiction zines.
This impressionistic short combines pen-and-ink and watercolor, paint-on-glass direct animation, and completely abstract experimental animation with stop-motion animated paper collage featuring hundreds of cut-outs from vintage magazines, encyclopedias, and repair manuals.
