Resistance and Resilience
Fogo Island Film / May 30 – Nov 24, 2019

Genesis 2.0 / Christian Frei, Maxim Arbugaev. Switzerland, 2018

Fogo Island Film: Resistance and Resilienceis devoted to international films that consider the diversity of relationships between nature and society. Now in its second year, Fogo Island Film features 10 screenings and special events held from May through November at the Fogo Island Inn Cinema. The program will culminate in two Festival Weekends on Fogo Island and in St. John’s featuring highlights from the series and invited guests in conversation around the themes of the program.

 

Naturales Historiae / Pauline Julier. Switzerland, 2018

Island of the Hungry Ghosts / Gabrielle Brady. Germany, UK, Australia, 2018

Fogo Island Film is dedicated to contemporary artistic and scientific debate that addresses nature and culture as an indivisible whole. Broaching themes of environmental degradation, the interconnectedness of species, geopolitical migration, the commodification of nature, Indigenous perspectives, social activism, as well as lives lived in deep connection with the natural world, the films question or condemn our actions, offer alternative perspectives and occasionally, suggest hope for a brighter future.

 

When Lambs Become Lions / Jon Kasbe. USA, 2018

Awake, a Dream from Standing Rock / Myron Dewey, Josh Fox. USA, 2017

Dead Donkeys Fear No Hyenas / Joakim Demmer. Sweden, Germany, Finland, 2017

Fogo Island Film expands upon the 2016-17 FIA Film series of socially and politically engaged film, and is equally inspired by Fogo Island’s longstanding relationship to film that emerged through the National Film Board of Canada’s (NFB) Challenge for Change program of the 1960s and 70s. A participatory project that used film as an instigator of social change, Challenge for Change led to the hugely influential Fogo Process films, which documented Fogo Islanders’ way of life and shared concerns, empowering communities to act together to determine their future.

 

The Green Lie / Werner Boote. Austria, 2017

Anote’s Ark / Matthieu Rytz. USA, 2018

Modified / Aube Giroux. Canada, 2017

Conceived by Goran Petrović Lotina following his 2016 residency with FIA, Fogo Island Film offers ambitious programming and invited guests with the eventual goal of establishing a recurring film festival on Fogo Island. The festival will be dedicated to the same concept and enriched by short and feature length film competitions to encourage new research and production.

Fogo Island Film 2019: Resistance and Resilience is co-curated by researcher and theorist Goran Petrović Lotina and FIA Director of Programs and Exhibitions Alexandra McIntosh.
