KEOPE - WORKING WITH THE AIR

KEOPE is a duo of musicians who play improvised music inspired by circular thinking and, among others, Adam Rudolph.

I shot this video upon the request of the musicians, who invited me to imagine a way to present the philosophy behind their project.
One day of shootings in Berlin, another one in Prešnica, lost in the remote countryside of Slovenia, and roughly three full days of editing, one of which spent on an airplane.

Special thanks to Ai Kurahashi and Aurora Mischi.

DIMMI di Storie Migranti

DIMMI di storie migranti (Tell Me About Migrant’s Stories) aims to build a new narration in Italy around the over-simplified topic of migrations, especially in this critical historical moment filled with anger and fear towards the other.

In the frame of this project, ten guys and girls coming from Italy and Iraq could travel the other’s countries and discover their limits and stereotypes, seeing with their own eyes the life and the problems of several specific topics such as: inter-cultural and inter-religious dialogue, civil society and war-related consequences.

The project is co-financed by AICS and coordinated by UPP, among others.

Below a selection of two mini-docs and a video-clip based on their original travel experience and one more reportage about the Poetry Slam workshop which took part in Monza (ITA).
The videos are spoken in Italian, Arabic and Kurdish, and subtitled in Italian.

Special thanks: Federico Guarino, Benedetta Sanna, David Fumolo.

KEOPE

KEOPE is the musical brainchild of Toni Bruna and Marcus Rossknecht - two artists who have known each other since 2005, having met and created music in Santiago de Chile. Marcus was touring Latin America with his musical partner Matias Aguayo, and Toni was working with inventor Roberto Larraguibel and major Chilean artists like Lotty Rosenfeld and Demian Shopf.

I’ve been asked to craft a story about what’s behind KEOPE and I’ve learnt about several concepts such as circular thinking in music and the human capability to predict rhythm.

Their video will be out soon!

DIMMI Exchange #2
NOTE: The two in the photo didn’t know the meaning of the graffiti at the time of the shot. It’s a joke and no harm or offence was meant. So, before suing me, opening an investigation or claiming a disciplinary recall, ask me to remove the photo or, if you can, laugh… life is short.

YOUTH FOR EUROPE

Youth for Europe is a project which bring together young between 18-30 y.o. across European Union countries and invite them to analyse and propose new laws and policies on the topics of environment, job & education, and media. The most voted proposals will be presented next year in Brussels.

I’m supporting the project as a trainer and I help the participants shoot and edit their ideas.
