Bachi da Setola presents
PerSe Visioni – Visual Art Exhibition – 5th edition
24th and 25th August 2012
Polignano a Mare (Ba) ITALY

Our goal is to analyse a precise relation’s juncture between
individual and space. Space can excite us, it can scare us, it can
take us by surprise, it communicates sensations. Sometimes space
permanently remains in our memory. Besides, space can give us an
instant of absolute intimacy with ourselves. During this instant we
feel like we “loose ourselves”. We can challenge you to represent this
moment, to not loose the vision, to share a vision lived by ourselves.

Attached infos and application form to send us your work.

Luigi Celeste

P.S. I hope you will send your wonderful catalogue!

Jean Rouch International Film Festival 2011

Seeing the World Differently

Jean Rouch International Film Festival
30th Ethnographic Film Panorama

November 7-12, 2011

Celebrating 30 Years


Please, pass this on to your colleagues, friends and students

From 8 to 10 March 1982, the first Bilan du Film Ethnographique was held in Paris. Since then, over 1300 movies from around the world have been screened, reflecting the social and cultural evolution of human societies and the richness of their diversity. Created by anthropologist and filmmaker Jean Rouch, this international event, in between culture and science, is organized by the Comité du Film Ethnographique.

Thirty years of cinema to see the world differently, to discover, understand and reflect on the future of man, to go beyond the description of placid reality, far off beaten tracks of exoticism, and finally to hear everybody’s voice. This aim carried on by the Comité du Film is more than ever relevant today, in a period of globalization and standardization. Another cinema about reality exists, that we are committed to screening and supporting.

During these thirty years, ethnographic film has undergone an unprecedented growth, due to evolution of the means of filmmaking, production, and distribution. The Festival’s mission is to present, each year, its most original and most relevant trends.

Screening films is necessary but not sufficient, we must also take time to open debates and promote discussions. For thirty years, the festival has dedicated, after each screening, a moment to generate interactions between filmmakers, researchers, producers, broadcasters, ethnographic film festival programmers and audience.

The Bilan du Film Ethnographique, that became in 2008, Festival International Jean Rouch, is an outstanding event. In 2011, we will celebrate its 30th anniversary, by organizing special events, to meet an increasingly enthusiastic and curious audience, in different places, such as Paris, French regions and abroad. These events will be an opportunity to get closer to new audiences and to continue the work of diffusion of ethnographic documentary films, achieved by the Comité du Film.

The Festival will be held between 7 to 12 November 2011
at the Maison des Cultures du Monde (101 Bd. Raspail, 75006 Paris).

Deadline for Submissions : April 15th, 2011




> VISUAL LAB offers an opportunity for students and the general public to discuss the documentary genre and confront various attitudes towards documentary making.
> The three-day program aims at sparking a debate about different ways to depict human society and historical issues on film. Together we will examine strong and weak points of recent documentary films and ask how successful they are in trying to get their message across. The goal of the discussion is to make the audience aware of the diverse paths documentary makers follow in their search for truth. Above all, it will sensitize participants to what they see on the screen, and enrich their visual literacy skills. Each program is constructed around a different theme and includes 4-6 film clips, leaving enough time to discuss specific issues related to each film and for a general discussion and summary. >
> I. POWER VISIBLE AND INVISIBLE / November 3, 1-3.30 PM / OSA Archivum >
> Documentary and its agenda, subversive documentaries, observational documentaries, activist documentaries. Filmmaker as interventionist. >
> Ways of using different source materials and constructing historical narratives: archival footage, eye-witnessing, expert knowledge. Subjectivity and truth. Filmmaker as investigator. >
> Self-reflexive documentaries, interaction between filmmaker and filmed subjects, entangled and open-ended histories. Filmmaker as film protagonist. >
> Location: OSA Archivum, Arany Janos u. 32. http://www.osaarchivum.org >
> Organized and moderated by
