The stages of femininity has seldom being reflected well in films, all the more less in animated films.
Prized at Locarno, El Gouna and Valladolid, ”Carne” celebrates and explores femininity through successive stages of life, as well as presenting a fresh examination on the perennial taboos that weigh on conceptions of the female body.
The short weaves highly disparate techniques – paint, watercolor, stop motion, 35mm film and virtual image decomposition via glitches and datamoshing. Sensorial styles correspond to different stages of women’s sexuality. Later herself has called her short “Raw, rare, to the point, made and well made.” She talked to Variety about the appeal of animation, techniques and references.
Spain’s Abano Producciones and Brazil’s Doctela-produced “Carne,” which competes in Annecy’s main short films section.
When asked about what are the main difficulties for a new director trying to make their first animation movie in Brazil, she said, "It’s the worst scenario for someone wanting to direct their first animated short. We’re completely in the dark regarding the COVID-19. Brazil’s number of confirmed cases is now only behind the U.S. But since the last elections, the same government that is responsible for this chaos is also suspending cultural funding, tearing down the Brazilian film agency Ancine and, more recently, trying to destroy our motion picture archive, shutting down the Brazilian Cinematheque."
