(English Title: “THE WOLF HOUSE”)
by JOAQUIN COCIÑA & CRISTOBAL LEON

(Feature Fiction Film / Stop-Motion Animation / Currently in Development Stage)

“La Casa Lobo” (The Wolf House) is a stop-motion feature film project that is currently under production. It tells the story of Maria, a young woman who takes refuge in a house in southern Chile after escaping from a German colony. The production process of the film is taking place in a series of exhibitions in which we moved our studio to various exhibition spaces. This way the public can see the development of the production, as a work in constant change.

EL ARCA

“EL ARCA”
by CRISTOBAL LEON & JOAQUIN COCIÑA

“El Arca” premiered at the International Film Festival Rotterdam, Shorts Competition this January 2012.

The short is based on the life and work of Athanasius Kircher. It was created for the exhibition “Kircher: La Imagen Barroca” at the National Library in Santiago de Chile. “El Arca” will now be featured in ART STATEMENTS / ART BASEL with Upstream Gallery.

(Part of the series “The Third World”)

(2011) Short Fiction Film

Between 2010 and 2011, Cristóbal León and Joaquín Cociña created the series of short-films “The Third World”. The series is made up of “Padre.Madre”, “EL Templo” and “El Arca”. The films were shown together as a film installation at Upstream Gallery. These films are the foundational chapters of a new creed. They present a savage procession, moving between sacred and intimate, beautiful and horrific, canonical and arbitrary, sublime and bestial. Every film is the beginning of a myth and also its immediate decadence.
