Longings (Yira Yira) is an homage to argentine cinema pioneer Federico Valle who produced the first animated feature in the world and started Argentina´s first news program. Tragically, most of Valle´s films were lost in a fire in 1926 and was forced to sell what was left of his films to a comb factory to use their celluloid as raw material.
The project, which aims to revert Valle´s cultural loss, consists in experimenting with current technology to recycle old plastic combs and turn them into projectable film. Mixing Historic research and film recycling the process will result in an experimental abstract film that will be screened with a 16mm projector.

This project was produced thanks to CIFO-Ars Electronica Award.
