Role: Camera operator ( I was one of 32 students who went to the streets with camera )
In a year of mass protests around the world, Spain is the setting for two general strikes against the government’s austerity plans. One takes place on 29 March, and the other on 14 November. On the days of the strike in Barcelona, 32 students from the Master’s Degree programme in Documentary Making at Pompeu Fabra University take to the streets with their cameras in order to record events from a variety of different perspectives, following the instructions of Russian director Victor Kossakovsky. The result is a “cinematographic ballet” in which the people, sounds and situations they encounter are combined with the music of Minkus to create a revelatory admixture that produces unforeseen effects.
