The European Cultural Centre (ECC) is delighted to organise the first cycle of Personal Structures | Public Screenings, an exclusive screening event presenting videos and films by selected participants of the Personal Structures exhibition 2022.
The screening event will take place in Palazzo Michiel on Saturday, 26th of November, 2022. Two special film previews will open the screening day from 11:00 to 13:00. The event will continue from 16:00 to 19:00 presenting a selection of short films. After the screenings, there will be an informal get-together with the films’ creators with an aperitivo.
The programme is co-curated by the ECC team in collaboration with a committee of professionals from the photography and film festival industry, who selected the videos from an Open Call under three topics: Self-reflections, New ecologies – Back to the Roots, Social Panorama. The committee was formed by Elena Volpato (Photography Curator of ECC), Joaquin Ingacio Gomez (Producer and Director of ONA Film Festival), and Giulia Costa (Television Development Executive).
The programme seeks to promote three key elements with the aim to highlight ECC’s mission and values:
Self-reflections, focusing on the artists’ creative inspiration process, including video interviews with the artist, and artist’s videos exploring the concept of Creation and Existence.
New ecologies – Back to the Roots, aims to highlight the need for humanity to reconnect with nature after the constant use of technology and fast evolution. This could be the start of a positive feedback loop between well-being, sustainability and connection to nature, beneficial for biodiversity conservation.
Social Panorama, reflecting on social and cultural issues, as well as exploring the possibilities of camera-based research by employing Ethnography and video-making, to depict human action through words, images, sounds and silences that articulate anthropologically relevant knowledge.
