    AMARILLO by Ana Pérez López

    Ana Pérez López lets us take part in her internet expedition to explore the fate of the Gros Michel banana with alert humor. A finely drawn chronicle which also uses relics of the media and everyday history of the 20th century to retrace how telegenic the industry banana is and will remain. Even if it will soon cease to exist.

    Ana Pérez López lets us take part in her Internet expedition to explore the fate of the Gros Michel banana with alert humor”, wrote Nadja Rademacher, research associate for the German Institute for Animated Film (DIAF), during the premiere of the film at Dok Leipzig 2016

    This “finely drawn chronicle uses relics of the media and everyday history of the 20th century to retrace how telegenic the industry banana is and will remain”, Rademacher adds.

    The inspiration for the 4 minute visual chronicle came from Pérez López’s attempt to figure out if the artificial flavor of banana is really based on a fruit that no longer exists, the Gros Michel. However, that simple Internet search quickly revealed that the once most popular strand of bananas of the USA has bleak obituary that speaks about the past, present and future of global food politics.

    The documentary animation has circulated for various festivals around the globe including the International Animation Festival Fest Anca, the MIAF Melbourne International Animation Festival, Locomoción and Dok Leipzig 2016, where it premiered last November.

    Ana Pérez López (Madrid.1990) is an international journalist who firmly believes that creativity is not a patrimony of artists. With pencil strokes and a dark sense of humor, she is interested in exploring how animation can be a legitimate language for non-fiction storytelling. As a current MFA Candidate (2018) in the Experimental Animation program of The California Institute of the Arts and a 2016 ASIFA-Hollywood Scholar, the work of the Spanish filmmaker questions truth in the days of the Internet.
