Punto de Vista 2018 Award winners
lacasinegra is a project that emerged for and from a profound collective consciousness. Up to now, their projects have taken them on very different paths: from the construction of an immediate look at daily life to the creation of audiovisual mapping as well as remixing, reflection on film montage or on relations between learning and audiovisual. However, there is always one premise in all of their work: to reject the answers and raise a new concern which enables them to continue moving forward.
In 2014, they released Pas à Genève, their first feature film, at the Seville Festival. Pas à Genève could be seen at different international festivals and exhibitions, such as Lima Independent (Lima), FestiFreak (Mar del Plata), Márgenes (Madrid) or the Cinema d’Autor (Barcelona) – and now online and free of charge at PLAT. It was also nominated for the Scribe Award 2014.

Recently, they showed their latest work, Luna cautiva serpiente roja bandeja de plata at L'Alternativa (Barcelona Independent Film Festival).
