Cinema di Seconda Mano #3

The “Second-Hand Cinema” festival is a viewing circuit investigating a type of research cinema, based on the recycling of “archive images”. When you refer to this sort of cinema, you will automatically think of the film roll. What if the video which is re-used to produce a new artwork was the result of a digital process? What if PIXELS replaced the film rolls?
Regardless of the origins of the images, “Second-Hand Cinema” focuses on the handling of sounds, images, and imaginaries, and on their re-use. That’s what all cinema is, a huge archive, an immense tank. However, in a digital era where everything is immediately accessible, everything is also immediately archived/discarded.
In this third edition of “Second-Hand Cinema”, we will, through a series of meetings and film screenings, explore new worlds and workshops, art factories, and meet cinema makers who take what has been discarded and transforme it into living material.
