Elke maand presenteert op deze pagina een gastcurator een artistiek (film)werk van een beginnende of relatief onbekende maker dat zowel politieke als poëtische kwaliteiten heeft. Joris Ivens was tegelijkertijd zowel een politieke als een poëtische filmmaker. Die twee kwaliteiten stonden niet tegenover elkaar, maar liepen in elkaar over. ‘Al mijn films hebben als grondpatroon dat mensen ergens door bewogen worden. Door hun verlangens naar vrijheid, door het water, de wind. Er is geloof ik geen verschil tussen Ivens die de wind filmt en Ivens die revoluties filmt’, zei Ivens in 1976. Vanuit die visie willen wij hier nu ruimte maken voor (film)kunstenaars die ook op het snijvlak van 'politiek' en 'poëzie' werken. Hoewel we met roulerende curators werken, ben je altijd vrij om je eigen werk voor te stellen aan ons of jezelf aan te bieden als curator als je een bepaald werk van iemand in de schijnwerpers wilt zetten.

We are very glad that Ezra Winton of Cinema Politica from Canada selected this film 'uprooted generation' for us. The reason why he selected this film for our page 'Politics and Poetry' is very clear: The film is part poem and part documentary, dedicated to the victims of residential schools. The film includes reflections on cultural disconnection, personal and community trauma, resilience, and the healing power of art.

Malva Castillo Venturelli is the coordinator of the Fundación José Venturelli in Chile. A while ago, The European Foundation Joris Ivens got in contact with the Fundación José Venturelli because Venturelli and Ivens used to be friends in the past. Venturelli died in 1988, just one year before Joris Ivens past away. We asked Malva Castillo Venturelli to select a piece of art in the light of 'Politics and Poetry'. She selected 'Caballero del Lucero' which means "Rider of bright star". Read the interview down here.

The film we want to show is from Pedro Tavares from Portugal, who had an internship at the foundation last year. He was very enthusiastic on the topic  'politics and poetry' so we like him to open up this page. READ INTERVIEW WITH PEDRO MOTA TAVARES:
