The Brazilian production reveals a latent creativity and a diversity of techniques - stop motion, 3D, pen and paper, wood, clay and puppet animation - that together design an explosion of colors and artistic expressions and tendencies.
MUMIA´s goals are to unveil new talents while being an artistic incubator for young beginners, to disseminate the cultural animation production and contribute to the development of this audiovisual art, its language, specific format and means of production.

"The most entertaining movie that Argentina has produced in recent times, has everything necessary to become a cult film."
“An effective and instant humor , impredecible and politically incorrect”
El Independiente (Argentina)
Si l’altermondialisme surprend ici parce qu’intergalactique, c’est surtout la satire du chaos social argentin qui fait mouche.
Cahiers du Cinéma, França.
Un film d’animation très subversif qui, à travers les mésaventures de son héros, est une critique acide de la mondialisation.
Le Figaro, França.
«(...) Après South park, sur un mode trash/fun/nihiliste, Mercano le Martien, qui est aussi à l’origine une série télé, montre encore une fois que le cinéma d’animation favorise l’expression de la contestation la plus subversive. Le cinéma en images réelles ferait bien d’en prendre de la graine.» Les Inrockuptibles (France)
«Quelque part entre «South park» et le graffiti d’écolier, voici un dessin animé argentin particulièrement déjanté. » Le Nouvel Observateur (France)
«Au risque d’employer une métaphore facile, on dira que MERCANO LE MARTIEN
est un ovni comme il en apparaît régulièrement dans la production mondiale de films
d’animation. (...) Sous ses aspects potaches et drôles, MERCANO a même un petit côté
subversif, notamment dans la dénonciation de la mondialisation, du fossé entre riches et pauvres ou la place omniprésente de la technologie. Et tout cela le rend sympathique.”
«Après avoir pris d’assaut le cinéma traditionnel, voici donc que la «nouvelle
vague» argentine se présente aux portes de l’animation.» Libération (France)
«Déclinaison d’une série télé, cette réponse de l’Amérique gaucho (de la pampa) à South Park mêle provocations et lucidité en transposant de façon drôle et saisissante la société
actuelle.» L’Humanité (France)
«Apocalyptique, gentiment provocateur, bricolé mais pleins de fougue, Mercano est un
pur produit de contre-culture comme vont l’adorer ceux qui aiment les bandes dessinées trash des années Crumb.»
«Très rock’n roll, mordant et maîtrisé, le film se glose de sa propre trivialité avec une folie cartoonesque rarement égalée. Fauché comme les blés, grand guignol ricaneur et anarcho, son créateur Juan Antin est surtout un grand frondeur dont l’étonnante clairvoyance et la débrouillardise de bricoleur lui permettent de tenir efficacement son sujet. » Chronic’art.com (France)
