The Werkwarenhuis in Den Bosch will be transformed into a cinema and theater on Saturday the 25th of May 2024 for the second edition of the CineMachine Festival. CineMachine invites you to explore the world of film and beyond with screenings, music, performances, creators, and more.

Starting at 1:00 PM, immerse yourself in one of the many performances, attend a masterclass, or relax and enjoy a selection of short (student)films. CineMachine is an interdisciplinary film festival for both creators and film enthusiasts.

Center, Ring, Mall (short film, 17 minutes, 2023) & Q&A - Mateo Vega - film

During CineMachine, Pop Up Cinema will screen the experimental short film Center, Ring, Mall by Mateo Vega.

Mateo Vega is a filmmaker and artist from Peru, who grew up in Amsterdam. Mateo's work focuses on the subjective experience of (urban) space and the politics, history, and future connected to landscapes, architecture, and infrastructure. Mateo's films and installations have been shown internationally at festivals and venues such as MoMA and the International Film Festival Rotterdam.

In Center, Ring, Mall, urban infrastructure in America takes center stage: a data center, a ring road, and a decaying shopping mall. All three locations were built with a certain worldview: visions of the future and promises of progress that were not fulfilled. Instead, these places have become dilapidated examples of empty promises. Through multilingual texts, site-specific music, 16mm, and 3D images, the spaces are mapped and questioned on film.
