Program Departing from the landscape and territory around and surrounding Ar.Co, we will make two types of exercises or exploratory trips. One without leaving the classroom: we will view and discuss films that will help us identify some of the stronger images and questions relating to the Beato and Marvila landscape (because it is a territory organized to be distant and hidden from the city’s view, or because it is a landscape punctuated by inhabited islands, separated by vacant lots). The other exercise will take place throughout the entire length of the workshop and implies the observation and mapping with film of a given territory (physical, emotional or other) that will be made to relate to this one. In both situations we will explore and try to understand in what ways does cinema alter the reality it touches.
