DIP: Online Workshop by Manuel Abramovich
Intervening reality, filming without a script, practicing our gaze and listening, taking advantage of accidents, inviting neighbors to become characters, rewriting an everyday scene, using intuition as a method.
How to stage intimacy?
This laboratory is conceived as a space for experimentation and play around the bond with others and the process of building trust with strangers, with the intention of offering participants a series of resources and devices that serve as inspirational exercises - a sort of toolbox - to develop their own strategies for investigating the real.
Based on open guidelines, participants will carry out a series of exercises each week in which they will have to rehearse their own devices for staging intimacy.
At each meeting, the works produced will be visualized and will serve as a starting point to talk concretely about the problems of representing intimacy in the cinema of the real.
-What is DIP about? - It's not about cinema, the word cinema doesn't suit, we'd have to find a new word. - It's about looking at the people around us with curious eyes. -It's about listening in a different way. -To give oneself to what is happening around us. - To inhabit unknown places. Exploring discomfort. To get close to people. It is about losing fear. - It's about learning to look at ourselves and to be looked at. It's about love and about cinema. It's about thinking that the documentary could also be a fantasy. - It's about the mystery of human beings!
