Caravane Amoureuse en Ethiopie

Marc Vella – Caravane Amoureuse en Ethiopie
Documentaire et Discussion avec Antoine, un participant de la Caravane.
En trente ans, le pianiste nomade Marc Vella a parcouru avec son piano à queue plus de 200 000 km sur les routes et chemins de plus de quarante pays pour célébrer l’humain.
Concepteur de la Caravane Amoureuse, il emmène avec lui des personnes pour dire “je t’aime” aux autres et “conquérir amoureusement” leur cœur et leur âme.
En 2013, grâce à l’enthousiasme de plusieurs Auroviliens, une Caravane quittait Auroville pour un périple en Inde du sud.
En novembre 2015, la Caravane partait en Ethiopie. Des hauts plateaux au sud profond dans la «Vallée de l’Omo», l’un des derniers endroits au monde où des peuples vivent encore selon leurs traditions ancestrales, un voyage musical et une rencontre stupéfiante entre cultures africaines et occidentales au cœur de l’Éthiopie.

Mini Festival du Film

Lionel Tardif, ex and long-time Director-Curator of the Tours Cultural Centre (France) will present
a montage of several films (extracts of about 10 ‘each) which retraces the main stages of the first period of the cinema from the primitives (1895-1920) to the End of the mute (1930) through the successive schools: the burlesque, the Swedish school, German expressionism, the Russian school and the French avant-garde. These periods show how the grammar of the cinema was constituted, and the first great cinematographic ideas which came to the attention of the preoccupations which were also born in theater, painting, music, architecture. This telescoping will give its letters of nobility to the art of the image which is enriched by drawing from the other arts. Little by little the cinema becomes a total art.
The event was organized by The French Pavilion.

Interview with Anna Bohlmark

Anna Bohlmark, a film maker from Sweden is in Auroville, to experience Auroville and give an experience to people for Auroville through her film, Fog of Bwindi. It is a very heart touching short film, which is more of documentary of events which occurred in 1991, when the Uganda government decided (with the backing of World Bank) to convert the Bwindi forest area into a protected national park. And in order to make successful this decision, the government had to evacuate and literally remove the indigenous people of that region, the pygmies of the Batwa tribe. The national park is a big tourist attraction, paying 500US$ per person to observe and engage with the endangered species of guerrilla. The government completely undersighted the relationship of the Batwa pygmies who have inhabitated those regions for 1000’s of years. The pygmies now find themselves, without their home nor land to basically survive upon. No help, support or rehabilitation plan was prepared for evacuation of nearly 6000 pygmies. Anna through her film, ventures deep into the lives of these unique and indigenous people to tell state of what occurred in their lives, when their own government abandoned them with any show or cause.

A Film on Pygmies from Bwindi

Documentary –

* FOG OF BWINDI

Uganda, 2015, Dir. Anna Bohlmark, 25 minutes, Documentary, English with English subtitles, Rated: G

For thousands of years the Batwa (a pygmy tribe) lived in harmony with the mountain gorillas in the Bwindi forest, south Western part of Uganda. In 1991, when the Bwindi forest became a world heritage, the pygmies were forcefully evacuated from the forest to leave space for the endangered gorillas. The mountain gorillas have become one of Africa´s biggest tourist attractions. But what happened to the Batwas?

This documentary give a frightening insight in a society that places economic interests above all others including human dignity.
