NOMADLAB - An education film programme, which focus on film and on moving image

28 | Jun | 2009

NOMADLAB is an education film programme, which focus on film and on moving image. Its aim is to promote visual culture and to give away reading tools to people in peripheral social contexts. It’s directed to dislocated, nomad populations to which themes of mobility and journey assume a form of routine. Migrants, Nomads and Foreigners are invited to take over the knowledge and materials which give them free access to the production of visual languages- in which they always participated as consumers, but have been always excluded as creators/artists. Through workshops and production courses of small budget documentaries and fiction films, NOMADLAB aims to facilitate the access to visual and cinematographic language.
NOMADLAB aims to produce an eye on the world throughout social contexts close to the idea of trans-territorial. It proposes as a work theme the reality of not-belonging to a place. It insists on a discourse of diversity and multiplicity of looks- it resists to the discourse of integration. The extreme ambition of NOMADLAB resides in that, even with poor work conditions, it achieves the energy and effervescence of the periphery territories life.
