A NORMAL STORY | MICHELE VANNUCCI | DOCUMENTÁRIO | ITALIA | 2015 | 16

Às vezes, os encontros ocorrem, que podem alterar a percepção que temos sobre a vida. Encontros, em que nenhuma ligação aparente nos liga para a pessoa que temos diante de nós, mas com quem nos sentimos instintivamente íntimo. Nos últimos dois anos, passei muito tempoo no bairro de onde ele vem (a última capa em Roma antes do grande anel viário que circunda Roma, como ele repete com orgulho) sem entender o porquê. Só agora eu entendo que sua história era na verdade a meu, vista em mundos completamente diferentes.

Sometimes, encounters occur that can change the perception we have on life. Encounters, in which no apparent bond links us to the person we have in front of us, but with whom we feel instinctively intimate. In the last two years I have often spent time in the neighborhood he comes from (the last hood in Rome before the great ring road that encircles Rome, as he repeats proudly) without ever understanding why. Only now do I understand that his story was in fact mine, declined in completely different worlds.

CAMREX | MARK CHAPMAN | DOCUMENTÁRIO | REINO UNIDO | 2015 | 15

 

Camrex House is a notorious homeless hostel that for 40 years has upheld a fearsome reputation. Its skewed, in-house morality perpetuated by men with complex histories.

Based on interviews with hostel residents, CAMREX constructs a series of unflinchingly visceral sequences that reveal a hidden world of untold stories.

Housing and welfare cuts in the UK have meant a rise in demand for shared accommodation and homelessness. Yet the experiences of residents in hostels are largely unknown (particularly privately run hostels). I wanted to explore the impact of the hostel environment on the men who lived there. I went to Camrex Hostel eager to explore the characters and stories as a photography project. However, I soon found that there were certain images, stories and atmospheres I couldn’t capture in the photos and moving image offered me that possibility. I didn’t want it to just be an unrelentingly grim piece about desperate people in a desperate place. It would be easy to produce an exploitative film in that environment. I wanted to make something that used the expressive tools of cinema to craft an intimate, visually-led and atmospheric film.

 

Research carried out at Northumbria University (where I also work), ‘found several properties occupied by vulnerable men with high incidences of alcohol dependency and poor physical and mental health.’ (Irving, 2015) Camrex was a wet hostel -meaning cheap alcohol could be purchased on the premises day and night- so some of the residents never left the building. An environment populated by men with varying and complex needs living side by side and without boundaries. The poor conditions, constant threat of violence and lack of control over their environment all impacted the residents’ mental health. This is personified by the lead character in CAMREX, Derek; a man whose family life suddenly fell apart. Derek’s erratic behaviour made him an outcast in a place for outsiders. Seldom engaging with appropriate mental health services, he instead lapsed into drug-dependency in order to cope.

CTRL | RUI ANTÓNIO | FICÇÃO  | 2014  | PORTUGAL | 9

Given a console there is an aesthetic excitement represented by the fiction that seems real. These allow live desires and fears in a controlled manner. But it is a false control. The consoles can operate with pre-programmed instructions that provide a fixed set of alternatives, giving the user a sense of control. Thus, one can pose the question: is the user who controls the console or a console that controls the user?
The film is about this duality between control and be controlled, among manipulate and be manipulated.

UMBRA  | PEDRO RENCA  | PORTUGAL |  DOCUMENTÁRIO  | 2016  | 20

Rute tenta encontrar um equilíbrio entre a sua saúde mental e o mundo que a rodeia. Umbra, uma égua de raça frísio, é o seu maior apoio emocional. Após ter sido diagnosticado um tumor sarcoide a Umbra, a intervenção cirúrgica para a sua remoção torna-se a única solução viável.

Rute entra num quadro de ansiedade e tristeza profunda. Nasce, assim, um jogo onde Rute e Umbra se vão amparar mutuamente nas suas tormentas e incertezas.

Agora, Umbra, com três anos de idade, ainda recupera junto de Rute, ali, naquele lugar singular em que as inquietações de uma sociedade desestruturada são colocadas de lado e se reencontra o perfeito equilíbrio.
