Cemetery (Archive works)
produzione Xing/Netmage 10
Carlos Casas is filmmaker and visual artist. His work is a cross between documentary film, cinema, and contemporary visual and sound arts. He studied Fine Arts, Cinema and Design. His last three films received awards from prestigious international festivals including Torino, Madrid, Buenos Aires and Mexico City; several of his videos have been shown in group exhibitions. After the experience at Fabrica in 2001, he began a trilogy dedicated to planetary environmental conditions, focused on Patagonia, The Sea of Aral and Siberia. Carlos Casas, who among other activities steers the Von Archives label together with artist Nico Vascellari, nurtures a special interest in sound and sonic landscapes, as demonstrated in 'Fieldworks' (monaural video, installations done while location-hunting or during pauses on film shoots) and in frequent presentations of his work in live-media.
He is currently working on a film about a cemetery of elephants on the borders between India and Nepal. At Netmage 10 he premieres his archive, his modus operandi, appunti, audiovisual experiments, and film previews. A first public presentation in different articulations that becomes the coordinated image of the festival and a series of visual and sound ambients, also between live sets.
