Anna Bucchetti
Saturday 29 July 10am-1pm

Bucchetti will discuss, with particular reference to Dreaming by Numbers, the challenge to capture authenticity and avoid clichés, the use of black & white film as a stylistic, aesthetic and poetic choice. Though the subjects may have totally different cultures and habits, how do you find the universal elements so that audiences can identify with, relate to, these strangers?


Erik Gandini and Tarik Saleh
Saturday 29 July 2pm-5pm

Political films can often be dry and boring. These filmmakers make highly entertaining political films such as Sacrificio, Surplus and now Gitmo. Their research is impeccable, their style distinct and their approach unique. They are not driven by some political calling but a personal desire to make films on subjects that interest them. How do they do this and why?
