Workshops with Michele Aiello and Davide Crudetti on May 25–27, 30 and June 6, 7, 16, 20–23, and 27–30 from 2–5pm, ZaLab co-founder Andrea Segre will be joining on June 16.
The Italian participatory film collective ZaLab is conducting an extensive film workshop with a group of Green light participants. During the workshop each participant is invited to learn how to make a video, to develop his/her own footage, and to present his/her work. The main topics that the Green light participants have chosen to engage in are: memory, music, civil rights, religion and work. They are in the process of developing a storyboard and seeking for locations in- and outside of the Biennale to develop the filmic material during the course of the workshop. The film(s) will be presented in the Green light space at the Biennale during the months of July and August.
Through this workshop, Green light–Shared learning offers an alternative and dramatic means of communication and individual expression and invites participants to explore or intensify their skills and interests in film and video making. ZaLab has conducted multiple participatory video laboratories with migrants and asylum seekers in places including the Tunisian desert, in a Palestinian village in the West Bank, in Bologna, Rome, Padua, in the Aeolian Islands, in the suburbs of Barcelona, and in Melbourne, Australia.
