IV Nazioarteko zine mintegia. Munduko memoria guztia = IV Seminario Internacional de Cine. Toda la memoria del mundo = All the world´s Memory. IV International Film Seminar
IVth International film seminar (June 7, 8 and 9) takes as its starting point Tabakalera's summer exhibition, a double proposal by the artists Jumana Manna and Uriel Orlow. Starting from the particular approach that each of them proposes to concepts such as botany, classification, nature, memory-history, politics, archive and intangible heritage, the seminar appeals to a classic of the history of cinema-essay, from which it is named after, and from which it will begin to expand: Toute la mémoire du monde, the film by Alain Resnais (in collaboration with Chris Marker) that portrayed in 1956 that great museum-institution depository of universal knowledge: the National Library of Paris.
Now, the questions:
Is an archive that escapes the scientific classification of the museum possible?
What cracks-questions-sound-images can and should provoke certain cinema in this system based on Eurocentric rationalism?
Is an archive possible, perhaps unclassifiable, certainly non-hegemonic, that has more to do with sensitive, vital, natural and collective experience?
How to replace the museum, marketable and extinguished by a common knowledge and alien to the production-object-value-circulation system?
Can we imagine a world? Does this idea presuppose an end? Does this idea presuppose a revolution?
