When we are in the middle of a story, it’s not a story at all, just a riot, and it’s only when we tell it to other people or to ourselves that it becomes a story. Families create their own narratives, stories are passed down from generation to generation, and so the past is still alive. Starting from the collection of 8mm and 16mm films from family archives in the Azores, this project is a study for a family film, not a personal family, but another family, an imaginary family that no longer exists.
Indagora, is a work in progress in the form of a live film where Pedro Maia work on the editing, sound and narrative of the film in real time. Presented via live streaming, this process aims to transform the traditional narrative structure of the family film into a representative record of a language that integrates contemporary visual culture, thus questioning the very “value” of image and memory.
