Filmmaker Eugenio Polgovsky First Full UK Retrospective

The award-winning Mexican filmmaker is best known for his innovative documentaries which chronicle the struggles of Mexico’s indigenous population against environmental threats and societal indifference.

The Institute of Contemporary Arts present The Invisibles, the first full UK retrospective dedicated to the work of award-winning Mexican documentary filmmaker Eugenio Polgovsky.

Polgovsky (1977 – 2017) is best known for his innovative documentaries which chronicle the struggles of Mexico’s indigenous population against environmental threats and societal indifference. Often self-produced and self-shot, Polgovsky’s films offer immersive portrayals of marginalised characters and communities, depicting the vulnerability of human beings and the natural environment.
The Invisibles pays tribute to the work of this singular filmmaker, visual poet and artist whose work has considerably impacted the Mexican documentary landscape, with screenings of his six best known films, each of which demonstrate the emotional power of the director’s highly personal visual language.
The Invisibles: The Work of Eugenio Polgovsky runs at the ICA from 25 August – 1 September. More information here
