Making a short docu film-looking for potential participans
Posted November 23rd, 2011 - 11:44 am by from Chiang Mai, Thailand (Permalink)
Hello people,

I'm thinking to really go on with my idea of making a short film (documentary) on long term (or perceived long) unemployment. I want to research on what this situation does to people. What do they (we) become. It would not be a reportage or political reflexion, rather an experimental, poetic piece, where image and discourse connect to create a meaning beyond them, and to reflect on how I feel. With anthropological twist to it. A film as a way to express certain lived experiences and to contrast them.

For this Im starting to write and think about the structure, but I need people that are willing to testify about their own unemployment situation in a very sincere and personal way. Faces and names are not needed necessarily. Stories, reflexions, thoughts that passed your mind, or that your heard about you by your entourage, in this time -unemployd-which is frequently though. Anything you wanna say. Does not need to be very long.

There's no guarantee that the fim will be distributed, and there's no financial aspect to all of this. I don't have money or a budget for this. I do this because I find it interesting and worth it.

If you're unemployed since some time and are interested in participating with your texts/testimony, please drop me an mp with your contact details and your views on this. We can meet individually in Bcn. You should be ready to write a couple of paragraphs about your situation, as if it was a diary kind of thing. Not necessarily structured in any way.

thanks,
maria
