Tapes From The Revolutionary: Festival Filmes Sobre Arte Portugal 2015 [Opening Film]


Tapes From The Revolutionary will be the opening film for Festival Filmes Sobre Arte Portugal 2015, taken place in Portugal 1-4th October. The festival has a strong line up of films that are dedicated to films on art, and articulate their aims as such:

“…the idea to present films made by film makers who, artists themselves, explore the universe of another artist. This challenge leads us to a close and deep approach to the world of an artists, a much closer contact than would we could achieve as a mere viewer or student of art.”

After discovering Hi8 tapes from a self-proclaimed political revolutionary, I wanted to experiment with what would happen if I gave full control to my participant as the filmmaker; reverse the salvage paradigm. Bad move. We had arguments and I lost control of where the film was going. However, this made the film richer. It became self-aware, and asked questions about why filmmakers create and how others see the world.

Tapes From The Revolutionary is a humorous unconventional documentary that turns the lens on itself an examines the filmmaking process. The film will be screening on 1st October, 6pm at Ze Dos Bois, Lisbon, Portugal.

E215. is a meditative insight into my gran mother as she reflects on her old age. The film is experimental highlighting that beauty can still be obtained from unlikely places. An optimistic perspective on ageing and a collaboration between young and old.
