Chiara Ambrosio and Caterina Pasqualino‘s Tierra Inquieta follows neighbours from a working class district of Granada, Spain who, after the 2008 financial crisis, transformed a dumping ground into an orchard, a physical manifestation of resistance, just miles away from the mass graves of the Spanish civil war, and where Garcia Lorca was murdered. It is a free space where marginalised people turn the earth every day, a place where there is order without politics and faith without religion. Ambrosio is in conversation following the UK premiere.
This event is part of our season Ways of Knowing: Earth / Matter.
Chiara Ambrosio is a London-based filmmaker and visual artist, working with animation, documentary, photography and printed matter to explore the ways in which we perceive, remember, articulate and preserve personal and collective histories and sense of place.
Her current ongoing project “Raft” uses film, radio broadcast and printed matter to imagine the city of London as a stage where encounters with real people and places speak to the role of local culture and applied imagination in shaping the identity of the city, creating a political and poetic form of resistance of the marginal, small and silenced.
Her work includes collaborations with musicians, composers and anthropologists and has been presented extensively both nationally and internationally at venues such as The Whitechapel Gallery, Anthology Film Archives and La Cinematheque Francaise.
For the last decade she has been curating “The Light Shadow Salon”, a moving image salon, at London’s cult venue The Horse Hospital.
Chiara runs a monthly radio show, “Raft”, on London’s Resonance 104.4 fm radio station, where she embarks on walks across the city with other practitioners, reaping and sowing stories within its streets.
