    • SOMEONE TO LOVE - Castellano (subtítulos)


      from Cristina Nuñez Added

      24'21'' Cristina Nuñez empezó a tomar autorretratos en privado en 1988 para superar problemas de autoestima que le llevaron a la drogadicción en la adolescencia. Esta práctica le permitió dar forma a sus propias emociones y revelar su presencia al mundo y al mismo tiempo, a través de una mirada sin concesiones sobre sí misma, crear un instrumento para proyectar la plasticidad de su identidad en transformación. Estas imágenes se convirtieron en una forma de auto-terapia a través de la cual Nuñez pudo acceder a su “yo” más profundo. “Someone to Love” (1988-2011) es una exposición itinerante que consiste en una serie de imágenes grandes y más de cien fotografías de pequeño formato que recorren todo el perímetro de la galería, formando una “linea de vida”. En el recorrido, los numerosos autorretratos de la autora se combinan con algunas imágenes significativas de sus antepasados y con los retratos que ella realizó de sus familiares, investigando las relaciones con ellos y entre ellos, y mostrando una constante inquietud hacía la búsqueda de las propias raíces y de la propia identidad a través de los rostros y de los cuerpos. La exposición comprende también dos vídeos: "Someone to Love" y "Higher Self". En el vídeo "Someone to Love" la voz de la artista unifica la secuencia de imágenes, mientras narra la historia de su familia y sus antepasados militares franquistas, su infancia "invisible", su adolescencia como heroinómana y prostituta, su experiencia en los centros de rehabilitación, su emigración a Italia, sus compañeros y sus hijas, el descubrimiento del autorretrato como auto-terapia y su trabajo con su madre hasta la muerte de ésta. En el vídeo "Higher Self" la artista expone su método de autorretrato terapéutico y su filosofía, afirmando que "la existente separación entre el arte y la terapia es intolerable". SOMEONE TO LOVE fue expuesto por primera vez en el Mois de la Photo de Montreal 2011. Sucesivamente, en la galería H2O de Barcelona, Luova gallery de Helsinki, CNA de Luxemburgo, MUSAC de León, Les Nuits Photographiques en París, Galerie du 4 Septembre en Arles, Festival Videomedeja de Novi Sad (Serbia), Social FotoFest de Perugia y Piombino y Centrale Montemartini de Roma, en ocasión del Premio Celeste 2012.

          • Souls of Zen - Buddhism, Ancestors, and the 2011 Tsunami in Japan: Trailer #1


            from Jakob Montrasio Added

            If you are interested to show Souls of Zen at your film festival or want us to submit it, do not hesitate to contact us. English and German versions are available. http://www.soulsofzen.com/contact/ Souls of Zen - Buddhism, Ancestors, and the 2011 Tsunami in Japan Produced by m&r Kreativ GmbH, with generous support by Heidelberg University Runtime: 89 minutes, Format: 1080p, 16:9 HD, Color Synopsis: The documentary “Souls of Zen – Buddhism, Ancestors, and the 2011 Tsunami in Japan” presents perspectives on Buddhism as practiced by clergy, lay adherents, and families in Japan by drawing on ethnographic fieldwork on the daily life of Buddhist temples, monastic education, prayer practice, mortuary rituals, and Japan’s tradition of ancestor veneration in the wake of 3/11. From March to December 2011, Tim Graf and Jakob Montrasio filmed invaluable footage of the greatest religious mobilization in Japan´s postwar history. This film is the only documentary based on sustained attention to the everyday lives of Buddhist professionals in the disaster zone. In an ethnographic journey from Tokyo to the hardest-hit prefectures (among other regions in Japan) Souls of Zen covers insights and opinions from scholars, clergy, and lay adherents with a focus on Soto Zen and Jodo Pure Land Buddhism. The filmmakers visited rural graveyards, urban temples, modern funeral halls, prayer monasteries, and public festivals to deliver a detailed account on Buddhism in the midst of Japan´s recovery from the triple disasters. The unfamiliar institutional, doctrinal, and psychological challenges Buddhist clergy are facing in the wake of 3/11 form a focal point of the film. These challenges will be discussed in context of long-standing Buddhist traditions, ritual innovations, and religious responses to the March 11, 2011 disaster in Japan. The film intends to re-evaluate the complex role of Buddhism in a society struggling with the sudden impact of catastrophic disasters that exacerbate and otherwise alter continuing dilemmas occasioned by demographic change and religious pluralism.

                • Short Trailer, THE GREAT HUMAN ODYSSEY


                  from Human Odyssey Added 3,476 44 0

                  The three-part series THE GREAT HUMAN ODYSSEY premiered in Canada on CBC-TV in February 2015, and will broadcast on PBS NOVA in the USA and around the world on major broadcasters later this year. Why are we the last of our kind? Anthropologist Niobe Thompson takes a journey of discovery in the footsteps of our human ancestors, and unlocks the mystery of our unlikely survival and miraculous emergence as the world’s only global species. We evolved during the most volatile era since the extinction of the dinosaurs. Like the many other kinds of human who once shared our world, Homo sapiens should have died away. Instead, our species survived to populate every corner of the planet. How did we do it? How did humans overcome near extinction in an African superdrought? How did we find a doorway through the Sahara and out of Africa? What happened when we met the Neanderthals? And how did humans master the Arctic… and cross the oceans? Breakthroughs in genetics, climate research and archeology are redrawing our knowledge of human origins at breathtaking speed. Dr. Niobe Thompson takes the audience inside groundbreaking scientific research to reveal dimensions of the human journey we once thought impossible. In a series of expeditions to some of the world’s most remote cultures, including the world’s last free-diving sea nomads, the Crocodile People of Papua New Guinea, Bushmen of the Kalahari, and reindeer herders of the Russian Artic, Dr. Thompson gives us a never-before-seen window on our species’ past. In the process, we discover the fragility of human life and the miracle of our adaptable, imaginative, and curious nature. Filmed over 18 months across 5 continents in 4K resolution, featuring drone and helicopter-mounted RED aerials, extensive underwater and Phantom slow-motion footage, and a live-recorded symphonic score. Host Dr. Niobe Thompson is a Cambridge-trained anthropologist and filmmaker. Since 2009, his nature and science documentaries have won multiple Gemini and Canadian Screen Awards and have been broadcast on major public broadcasters around the world, including CBC, Arte, Smithsonian Channel and NHK. Under Niobe’s direction, Clearwater Documentary emerged in 2012 as a Global 100 production company, recognized by Realscreen as one of the world’s 100 most influential production companies.

                  • Benue: Ancestral Masquerades / Ghost Masquerades


                    from Fowler Museum Added 3,470 15 1

                    Boundary Crossing: The Circulation of Masquerades Whether to incarnate ancestors, enforce social codes, support royal and chiefly authority, celebrate warriors, or to entertain, masquerades were performed throughout the Lower Benue. The circumstances of war, migration, and resettlement since the nineteenth century have meant that masks were and continue to be highly mobile. They could be taken as war booty, bought and sold, adopted with or without accompanying rituals, and altered to suit aesthetic or social requirements of a new community. Reinterpreted by new owners, their meanings changed in response to different contexts and needs. As cultural boundary crossers, masquerade traditions also retain some traces of where they have been. Their names, origin stories, accompanying musical instrumentation, idiosyncratic dance steps, or special adornments are all clues to their historical paths. The influence of Igbo, Ibibio, Boki, and other Cross River peoples can be seen especially in Idoma masquerades, particularly the whiteface mask so recognizable in southeastern Nigeria.
