Argentina – The CINéTICO Project by SMK Videofactory

Screenings of documentaries and introduction of the OpenDDB net. In Buenos Aires, Rosario, Córdoba, Santiago del Estero until October 4th

The Harvest by Andrea Paco Mariani is a docu-musical that for the first time combines the documentary and the traditional Punjabi choreographies, to show the humiliation of the workers in the fields exploited by the gang-masters. A though work of seeding, day after day, whose deserved harvest, between residence permits to be renewed and fake pay checks, still appears very far.

It was produced by SMK Videofactory, an independent production company in Bologna which has been mainly producing social documentaries and journalistic inquiries.

In 2013 SMK Videofactory created OpenDDB, the first European portal of creative works in Creative Commons.

Now OpenDDB is introduced in Argentine thanks to the CINéTICO Project.
Born from the collaboration between IMD – Instituto Multimedia DerHumALC (Derechos Humanos en América Latina y el Caribe) in Buenos Aires and SMK Videofactory, the project aims at creating new networks of multimedia distribution between Emilia Romagna and Argentina.

From September 23rd to October 4th, workshops, meetings, and screenings have been organized in Buenos Aires, Rosario, Córdoba, Santiago del Estero to share practices and knowledge with independent Argentinian film directors, producers and professionals and to develop partnership and co-operation with innovative ways of production and distribution.

Moreover, The Harvest is presented at the FINCADH - Festival Internacional de Cine Ambiental y Derechos Humanos in Santiago del Estero, and director Andrea Paco Mariani will attend.

Another title of the OpenDDB portal is presented at the FINCADH: È stato morto un ragazzo, awarded documentary on the human and judicial events linked to the death of Federico Alrovandi written and directed by Filippo Vendemmiati, journalist and director from Emilia.

The activities of CINéTICO in Argentina are carried out thanks to the support by Emilia-Romagna Region and with the collaboration by the Italian Cultural Institute in Buenos Aires.
