From ethnographic portrayal of sounds and silence, magical and awakening journeys through diverse settings and soundscapes, to voicing the inaudible and the misheard, the online edition of the Cinema Island focuses on the documentary powers of sound in film and beyond. Can we listen?
Reacting to ecological and political situation of today, CCamp 2017 invited to reflect the connection between the planet and the human in the era in Anthropocene, and to discuss topics such as film ecology, cinematic representation of nature and animal lifes, as well as animality of the film medium itself.
