a place for zinesters - writers and readers
I'm looking for films related to zines or indy press. We are about to organize a zine fest in Athens (GR) and I think it would be great to show a short film/s about the zine scene.
Let me know if you have anything in mind. ;)
We have a film about Belorussian zine scene, named "KinaZina", made by two girls (who also make Tryznas Kefiras fanzine). It contains 12 interviews with different Belorussian zinesters, each about 5-10 minutes long.
You can download it here:
Or watch any of 12 interviews on YouTube (search by term KinaZina):
All info is available here (the page is in russian, but it's very simple, so you can use Google Translate):
There's also a film about Brazilian zine scene here, on wemakezines.ning.com. :)
The only zine film I remember right now is "¿Qué significa underground?", a Spanish documentary by Guillermo Carandini released in 2009. It's pretty centered in the Spanish comic scene (the most important one in the country).
You can visit the official website here:
Watch the trailer here:
And read some more info here (in Spanish, but as bachan said, you can use Google translator) :
Some time back I think they were preparing some English subtitles, but I don't know if they finally made them.
Both videos seem very interesting but the subtitles is an issue. I've just e-mail Guillermo Carandini about the film and hope for good news.
Thank u guys!
I haven't heard it before to be honest. I saw the trailer and seems pretty nice! Sadly, the people who made it have no english subs, something that would be very helpful for the screening.

I can recommend you some of my favorite zines if you want to.
Thanks, I already knew the page, but I hadn't seen the cathegories before.
I found the link of the Brazilian documentary.
It's downloadable and it has English subtitles :
