The renowned photography agency’s first UK film festival in collaboration with Rio Cinema proposes an interrogation of its photojournalistic archives via film and a series of critical discussions.


AN ARTS ECOLOGY

Representations of the Mediterranean


This strand takes the work of those involved in various creative mediums - photography, architecture and installation - exploring how these disciplines inform their approach to film, with a specific focus on stories centring the Mediterranean.


Together, they offer observations on how the social, cultural and political, play out in contexts deemed ‘wild’ and natural, foregrounding both the aches andbonds born from human migration


In Mare-Mater (2014, 52m, 12)

photographer Patrick  Zachmann traces the trajectory of his mother, born to a Jewish family in Algeria, an identity she  hid upon moving to France in the post-war period.

Interwoven with this personal voyage are  stories of contemporary South-North migration, spanning Malta, Tunisia, Greece and Lampedusa, exploring the complex encounters of the Mediterranean, and the familial bonds which stretch across it.
