Remembering the Tragedy of Lampedusa: radical participation in documentary film making (2017 - 2018)
Project Leader: Karina Horsti
Team: MA, film maker Anna Blom, PhD student Ilaria Tucci, refugee activist Adal Neguse
This participatory documentary film project examines the constitution of national and diasporic memory by focusing on the memories of one shipwreck, the so-called Tragedy of Lampedusa of 3rd October 2013. We produce five short documentary films designed to be shared in social media and in mobile devices. In addition, the project develops and analyzes participatory methods in film making. Artistic and scholarly work entangle in this project, which develops a radical participatory method in both research and cultural production.
The project is funded by the KONE Foundation.
