The Purple Meridians

Five meridians are drawn on the map between Barcelona (Spain) and Turin (Italy). A person walking from Turin to Diyarbakır (Turkey) would cross thirty-five more. Three cities and countries distant in space yet sharing the desire for a fairer distribution of opportunities for women and non-binary people in the audiovisual and film industry.

As part of three organisations from these cities, The Unidentified Frame Observatory (Spain), Streeen.org (Italy) and Rosa Kadın Derneği (Kurdistan- Turkey), we decided to respond to that desire by creating The Purple Meridians.

The Purple Meridians is a joint project by three organisations in Spain, Italy and Turkey with the support of 2021 Eurimages Gender Equality Sponsorship.

Between Worlds *2

CRA’P in collaboration with the Archives OVNI – Unidentified Frame Observatory,  presents a video program with a subsequent discussion about the intermediate world: between the visible and the invisible, sleep and wakefulness, the states of trance.

Migrant Knowledge

The selection of videos presented in the Migrant Knowledge project puts forward alternative constructions of thought, analysis, and reflection concerning migrations. It does so through a plurality of views, experiences, memories, and stories that converge in a three-day program live at the Centre Civic Can Felipa, and a two-week online audio-visual menu, based on a selection of videos from the Archives OVNI – Observatory of Unidentified Video.

Al Barzaj [between worlds]

Al Barzaj is a poem about the halfway world, between the visible and the invisible, sleep and wakefulness… An inner journey through underground streets and secret gardens.

The breeze at dawn has secrets to tell you. Don’t go back to sleep
You must ask for what you really want. Don’t go back to sleep
People are going back and forth across the doorsill, where the two worlds touch
The door is round and open. Don’t go back to sleep

Mohammad Rūmī.

Silence in the awakening of the worlds

If a world awakens among us, we do not remain the same.

We have embarked on a research process that will look into the silence in which certain images alter a person’s life when they collide with it, triggering a “reworking” of the stories that this life tells itself.
