AV Peformance: In Search of Belonging: A Cinematic Voyage
Alla Ricerca dell'appartenenza : Un Viaggio Cinematografico

A live Audio-Visual cinematic exploration about family, immigration and a sense of belonging, touching on Neo-Realism & Post-Realism.

The performance used excerpts from various feature and documentary films, my video documentation of Macchiagodena (previous years) and used as a narrative structure, excerpts from the book by Shaun Tan, "The Arrival".

I also used various music from Italy, France and the USA.

VJ Performance & Video Documentation for TCT TV

Video documented the village and people which I used in my live VJ mix, and that was also broadcasted on TCT TV.

I made a short video "Macchiagodena" which compared Macchiagodena of the 1950's - with the photographs of Frank Monaco - to Macchiagodena of 2007. 1st Place Video Award Borghi Autentici d'Italia (Friuli, Italy), 2009.

Note: The "Macchiagodena" video is missing the credits for Frank Monaco's photos. Also, I used traditional music from the region of Molise.
