Thanks to the collaborative efforts of the Clermont-Ferrand Festival, Tabakalera and Donostia Kultura, which celebrates its eighth anniversary this year, from 16 to 20th of February, all films included in the festival’s LABO experimental section will be screened at Teatro Principal. The cycle includes a selection of experimental proposals, offering new and, on many occasions, disturbing points of view, as well as works verging on the edge of video-art or contemporary art, all located in this space in which the lines delimiting the different disciplines become increasingly blurred.
