This is a past event.
Within the scope of the Cinema and Ecological Reasoning conference to take place in May, and in tune with the launch of the microsite “Secrets and Nature”, we present a brief conversation with historian, and researcher in the field of cinematographic studies, Teresa Castro. We delve into the ways cinema may trigger and widen our understanding of the world. We talk about the importance of “smaller lives”, of knowing how to open up to turbulence, to uncertainty and to what is perceived as a “blurred” experience. We look at what emerges in the paths of ruin. We observe the traces of new ways of life and realize how symbiotic relations, built on cooperation and affiliation drive away the old paradigms of competition and struggle for survival. How to fathom an achievable life, outside the scene of catastrophe we face every day?
These are questions to be addressed in this brief conversation available on Culturgest's website, Facebook and YouTube and on the “Secrets of Nature” microsite’s films and videos, as of January 28. More cinema in May at Culturgest's Small Auditorium.
