From The Onion Cellar:
Les Siestes Electroniques, The Onion Cellar and CAMA ATK join forces to bring you an epic 4-hour-long film-and-music workshop with the renowned nomadic French filmmaker Vincent Moon, who will be delivering a long intimate talk and leading discussions on cinema and his filmmaking process, sharing his travel stories, screening his recent works, exchanging ideas with the audience, and more. Expect an eclectic spectrum of topics from modern filmmaking technology all the way to shamanic rituals around the world.
On Vincent Moon
That image of indie bands and artists performing impromptu gigs on the streets of Paris probably automatically makes people think of La Blogothèque and Vincent Moon. But such limited description would do this talented French filmmaker injustice. His recent nomadic years have seen him travelling around and across the world, from the remotest African villages through deserts, rainforests, South American cities thousand metres above sea level, witnessing mystical religious rituals, breathing in urban dusts from myriads of South East Asian motorbikes.
What Vincent Moon has been looking for, however, is not even the most magnificent sight on Earth. The same camera and a few low-budget microphones that have helped him film countless Western bands are now used to capture traditional arts and music that are constantly facing the threat of being consumed by modernity; or local musicians that seem to have been forgotten by the world and the passing of time. Everywhere he goes more and more ‘Take Away Shows’ (of a new, much more exotic variety) take place. Gradually, a new series takes shape: Petites Planètes – Little Planet.
A minimum donation of VND 100,000 is kindly requested (IN ADVANCE) – all proceeds go to Vincent Moon to help support his filmmaking and travelling.
Please see this link for details on how to register and to make your donation. One person per registration form.
Language:This workshop will be in English, with Vietnamese live-translation.
