Residency by António Caramelo | August 13th to 16th

Ao adquirir um projector de filme de 16 mm, António Caramelo visitou-nos para mais uma residência que influenciou o nosso ciclo de cinema ao ar livre – Cinema na Aldeia. Permitiu-nos assim criar um momento de visita ao passado, em que a projeção do vídeo era acompanhada pelo som da fita a desenrolar-se das bobinas e pela gargalhados dos espetadores.

As soon as António Caramelo acquired a 16mm film projector visited us for another residence that influenced our outdoor cinema cycle – Cinema na Aldeia. He allowed us to create a moment of visit to the past, where the video projection was followed by the sound of the tape unfolding from the reels and the laughter of the spectators.
