Friday’s program starts with 16 pieces of video art from Quito (or at least that’s the group title) by Ecuadorian filmmakers and continues with Este Maldito País, an hourlong documentary by Juan Martín Cueva about what traits can be said to define Ecuadorians, then wraps up with Pedro Andrade’s Trafficombo, a 36-minute documentary about immigrants.

Saturday’s program features six video artworks from Guayaquil, followed by Retazos de Vida, a drama by Viviana Cordero about three generations of women in Guayaquil.

All the features are in Spanish with English subtitles, and you can read more about them here. Suggested donation for museum entrance is $5.
