HALL OF MIRRORS
A Hall of Mirrors, a permanent laboratory in Trieste, Italy on the border with Slovenia and Croatia, on the balkan route of migrations. We will use cinema and video tools, through participatory video techniques, media education and social innovative storytelling to shake and provoke the Old Lady Europe. In the Hall of Mirrors weird images appear and are reflected and deflected, you may get scared or laugh and start to play, sharing good humour with others.
Trieste, Italy on the border with slovenia, croatia Austria
The young people involved, from italy, slovenia, croatia and austria will take the stage, will be the directors of films, shortfilms, documentaries and participatory videos that will enable them to be main characters and authors of the messages they will decide to convey.
The creation of powerful storytelling, through a participatory process that will be the main aim always for us. The process before the outcome.
We will get to our goal making movies, watching movies, filming each other, discussing movie techniques, finding the most innovative and challenging way to tell our stories through moving images. The different and innovative idea is to move away from the idea of "the author", "the director" as super individuals, but to propose a cooperative, participatory process of filmmaking.
Because i am a film director and producer, but also an educator and social worker. I believe in the strengh of cooperative artistic creation and confrontation. I believe we need to create hotspots for creativity and exchange of energy between young individuals from different backgrounds.
for young disadvantage groups of migrants, mentally unstable youngsters, disabled individuals. Beneficiaries are the audience, and the audience is the beneficiary, thorugh the participatory process. But the audiences may also be chosen by the partecipants in order to convey a specific message, polit
encouragement, partnership proposals, film distribution options and any comment that may be pertinent to the project
