                          OVERLAP is a network platform that provides a space of reunion and screening for audiovisual researchers dealing with the theoretical, ethical and aesthetical questions of representation and subjectivity.

                          We believe that social scientists are responsible for making the knowledge they produced available to a broader audience, and so this group has been created as an open and free platform that will increase and enrich the accessibility of anthropological films and discussions. We like to think of this space as the first step in a larger project that will -in the future- include public screenings,…

                          OVERLAP is a network platform that provides a space of reunion and screening for audiovisual researchers dealing with the theoretical, ethical and aesthetical questions of representation and subjectivity.

                          We believe that social scientists are responsible for making the knowledge they produced available to a broader audience, and so this group has been created as an open and free platform that will increase and enrich the accessibility of anthropological films and discussions. We like to think of this space as the first step in a larger project that will -in the future- include public screenings, forums, joint projects with other institutions, publications and why not our own festival, curated and managed by this very same community.

                          We accept any audiovisual work produced using ethnographic methodologies, but are especially interested in those that explore the particularities of audiovisual language in order to convey and communicate social knowledge in creative and unconventional ways. We want to become a dynamic and horizontal laboratory where people with wide spectrum of fields, cultures and nationalities can reflect, debate, find support and exchange their views on the diverse ways in which reality can be experienced and represented.
