This week in Frankfurt, a workshop organized by the Kinothek Asta Nielsen on women amateur filmmakers.

The Kinothek Asta Nielsen would like to bring into being a Frankfurt network that would be devoted to the history and future of the cine film and would draw attention both to women film makers and to the history of women and of the gender relations documented in the home movie.

The Université du Luxembourg, Centre national de l’Audiovisuel Luxembourg, Dudelange will host the conference “Tourists and Nomads. Amateur Images of Migration,” from April 22 to 24, 2010.

“Drawing on Zygmunt Bauman’s distinction between two types of deterritorialisation, lived by “tourists” (moving out of choice) or by “nomads” (migrating out of economic necessity), this conference seeks to examine how experiences of spatial displacement are being represented and communicated by self-made photographs or films.”
