Il Gusto della Memoria
Competition announcement 2017
The Family In All of Its Forms
In 2017, after the great success of the past editions, the staff of the archive film festival Il Gusto Della Memoria (The Taste of Memory) has chosen to interrogate filmmakers of all ages on the histories and forms o the family in the 21st centry. The discussions surrounding the topics of homosexual weddings, adoptions and single parent families have raised much controversy in Italy.
What do the new intellectuals have to say in regards to this? How do they elaborate on this topic visually? We are interested in the development of films that could be composed of new homemovies combined with the homemovies of th 20th century; a dialogue between family portraits.
Nosarchives.com and Archiio LUCE will provide the archive footage ; participants will contribute with their material and vision. The question we pose are the following: are there any real differences between family images? Or are all families really an exception?
We expect submission to stimulate reflections on this topic.
How to partecipate
The contest is open to everyone. Participants must use at least 60% of archival images: max 1 minute can be taken from the Archivio Luce and the rest from nosarchives.com.
