Bio

Cultural anthropologist and filmmaker, he trained as a documentary filmmaker with the Aura Scuola di Cinema in Ostana. His experience with photography and video is intertwined with his interest in anthropological research in the production of documentaries. He has been collaborating for years with the Chambra d’Oc association - active in the promotion of the Occitan and Franco-Provençal language - and with traditional Occitan and Roma music players. Among his latest productions: "Lo sumi de la lenga vai a Montpelhier", "Lo sol poder es que de dire. Interview with Fausta Garavini", "Courenta dentro", "La Vioulounado - Na Rigoulado de Vioulouns a Fraise", "A story never told. Interview with Josephine Bacon". He worked with Fredo Valla on the documentary film "Bogre - The great European heresy" and devoted himself to editing a feature film on the nomadic journey of the Carovana Balacaval.

Project

The project we will tackle at Faberllull is collaborative one, and will need dynamic interaction within the residency’s participants: through interviews, workshops and applied research, we will explore how a linguistic rights’ viewpoint shall be incorporated into the narrative of linguistic biodiversity, ecology and linguistic sustainability; also in connection with social networks, new audiences and new speakers of minority languages. The members of the Chambra d’Òc who will take part in Faberllull come from very different backgrounds, and we will frame our reflections from a philological, anthropological, musical and audiovisual point of view. To integrate these disciplines, theory can be insufficient, and for this reason we will propose the debate on linguistic rights in the field of creation, and foster the exchange between creators in situ when possible. Finally, it is essential for our project to continue expanding the network of the Ostana Prize: we will focus on adding value to the international community we have set up to work on linguistic biodiversity.
