Leandro Varela’s body of work is rooted in hand-drawn animation and incorporates traditional cameraless filmmaking practices. The result is a cinema made of minimal gestures and radical length choices (most of his films run under a minute). A conceptual piece with a slight hint of sci-fi, La Señal Cósmica (The Cosmic Signal) shows a series of messages encoded on film by puncturing and scratching the emulsion.
