“Mediterranean Interrupted: Human Rights, Love, Rebellion, Testimony and Filmmaking,” an audiovisual conversation with international award-winning director Andrea Segre, will be presented Tuesday, March 12 at 5:30 p.m. in 301 Herter Hall. The talk will be accompanied by excerpts from his documentaries “The Green Blood,” “Like a Man on Earth” and “Closed Sea.”
Segre is a director of fictions and documentaries for cinema and television and also a researcher in sociology of communication. For over 10 years he has been particularly dedicated to the topic of migration and is the founder of the association ZaLab, which develops production projects and participatory-video workshops. Segre loves to mix the methods and styles of documentary cinema—working with non-professional actors and always choosing locations in the real world—with the aesthetic tension of the international independent cinema. The horizon of his artistic action is always connected with an ethical attention to injustice and aimed at promoting interpersonal understanding, knowledge of social conditions and cultural exchange.
