The eminent minimalist animation festival, Punto y Raya (Dot and Line) has been dubbed “the most abstract festival in the world.” The biennial festival fosters experimentation in visual arts through the use of pure form, color, motion, and sound, with no direct representation. Crossing traditions of dancing images, abstract art, and minimalism, the Punto y Raya festival highlights eye-catching animations from around the world. Catch a 30-minute all-ages screening and at 3:00 p.m. watch the complete program of the 18 best films of the 2018 festival.
