V.O.W N°14 (Video Of the Week, 4 - 10 April 2011)
There is no doubt that art should be brought to the world and that artistic expression should be encouraged and promoted at any given chance. After all, art has the strength to make us feel alive and gives a meaningful essence to things that surround us. This 75min DIY documentary film on new art and the young artists behind it which is directed by Isaac Niemand, and produced by ROJO® in collaboration with BossaNovaFilms is a true manifestation of the fact that art and the process of making art should be a shared experience which has the power to sustain a productive dialogue and moves things forward. The trailer will give you a taste of what the documentary is all about. It was filmed on the heat of live action at ®Nova Contemporary Culture which happened in July and August 2010, in MIS-Museum of Image and Sound, and SESC Pompeia, in São Paulo, Brazil. More than 140 selected artists from around the world came together to feature live music & audiovisuals; live performances, video screenings, outdoor art installations, round tables, experimental gastronomy, artist presentations, and many unpredictable social consequences.
