Live Cinema event: Tales of Violence and Everyday Life
World premieres of two very different interactive documentaries that provide a unique glimpse into Latin America.
In the first, MAFI.tv – Filmic Map of a Country, a new generation of filmmakers collectively paints a portrait of their home country of Chile through a poetic web documentary full of absurd and touching moments of everyday life. The second project is Alma, a Tale of Violence, directed by Miquel Dewever-Plana and Isabelle Fougère and produced by Upian, one of the most important pioneers of interactive documentary (GazaSderot, Prison Valley). Using interactive tablets such as the iPad in a way that has never been seen before, the project tells the story of a young girl and her life inside one of the most violent gangs of Guatamala. Both projects are navigated live by their creators on the big screen, followed by a Q&A.
