Film show and conversation circles
The state of São Paulo, in Brazil, and the region of Antioquia, in Colombia, are spaces where multiple cultural and social manifestations converge, making it difficult to summarize them in a few words and forms. Both bring together numerous contradictions and urban challenges related to immigration, inequalities and violence. The works presented in this exhibition narrate multiple possibilities of (re)existing. Through art, housing, religion and other practices, many peoples weave the plots of the territories that are the stage for these films.
Celebrating 30 years of creation and 20 years of production by the Laboratory of Image and Sound in Anthropology (LISA) of the Anthropology Department of the University of São Paulo (USP), this exhibition proposes a filmic dialogue between multiple cities in the regions mentioned, through colors , sounds and movements recorded by the lenses of anthropologists and anthropologists from the two countries, Brazil and Colombia.
Throughout the month of August 29 films that received support or were produced by LISA will be screened, in addition to Colombian productions. The films will be distributed in three programs. The first, The city and its spaces, highlights different places as articulating powers that affect and mobilize people. The second, Space and its arts, includes portraits of different artistic and cultural expressions in urban contexts. Finally, in the third, Space and its inhabitants, the focus shifts to people who, in their own way, circulate and appropriate spaces in the registered contexts, seeking different forms of belonging. Each program of the exhibition will feature a conversation circle about the films, which will feature the participation of directors and researchers who investigate the topics covered.
