CIAK! Porto Torres
Porto Torres Local Municipality- Consulta del Volontariato Portotorrese. April – July 2016
The town of Porto Torres is widely known for its industrial expanse, an important chemical centre that has contributed to the evolution and transformation of society and its culture.
The CIAK! workshop has involved a group of young people from Porto Torres, proposing an alternative style of narrative, through the art of recounting themselves and their own spaces, the use of the image as a form of relationship and aggregation in a deep sense of belonging in time and space. The aim was that of describing one’s city from a different point of view, a generational outlook conveyed through the audiovisual language and cinematographic practice on the field.
The theme that emerged in a shared manner during the meetings is the representation of change that has occurred within the society of Porto Torres. This has led the participants to conduct a field research and to meet people who could describe all the details of the change that their community has experienced. It’s an exploration and a discovery about human stories and places that have survived industrial, social and landscape transformation, all recounted in the documentary “(R)Esistenze”.
