SEMINAR The “how” is unavoidably entangled with the “what”
Thursday 21 April, 10am-5pm
Erg (87 rue du Page, 1050 Bruxelles)
Articulated as a series of four in-depth conversations, the seminar unpacks the intricate relationship between concept and production choices in moving image practices. That is, between what a film is about and how one decides to execute it, to show it and eventually to let others take care of it. Four films (some completed; some in process) will provide the ground for a discussion with their filmmakers on the beauty of (or the struggle for) coherence between a film and the conditions under which it is brought to exist.
With: Corinne Diserens, Babak Afrasiabi & Nasrin Tabatabai, Anna Manubens, Ellen Meiresonne, Christine Meisner, María Palacios Cruz, Laurence Rassel, Penny Siopis and Fabrizio Terranova.
