Transfigured Boundaries

About the Program

Transfigured boundaries broadens the space for, and access to, global cinematic explorations by spotlighting independent filmmaking that ranges from experimental and provocative to genre-bending and absurdist. With a focus on underrepresented themes and diverse storytelling, the film program intends to take these films beyond film society echo chambers and to the general public because interesting cinema should be everyone’s right. 

In a socio-politically divided time, transfigured boundaries attempts to bring together different audiences from varied backgrounds so they can experience not just the transformative potential of cinema, but also, the fluidity of its form itself.

Meet our Team

Sofia Peypoch


Mexico City, 1994. A visual artist who combines film, photography, poetry, ceramic sculpture and found objects. She is currently pursuing a degree in Cinematography at the Centro de Capacitación Cinematográfica. At the centre of her work is the sensitive experience, which is expressed through the observation of nature by drawing parallels between the body and the forest. Her practice resides in the interstice between personal memory and collective thought. Her film there is a willow grows aslant a brook, premiered at the Sphere Film Festival’s ‘World Cinema Carnival’ in 2022. Her film there with fantastic garlands did she come premiered at the twelfth edition of FICUNAM as part of the Umbrales program.

Hyash Tanmoy


In the midst of measuring pitfalls and menaces, Hyash searches for meditative resilience and solidarity through moving images and undefined art forms. Their practice is an endangered combination of silhouettes that traverses from hieroglyphs to Python. At the intersection of undiagnosed panic attacks and personal traumas, they are searching for a language of translation and reciprocation to make the experience inclusive for everyone in the show - the archive is under construction (mentally and physically).
