‘Cartographers’ is a 22 minute documentary film and a series of archival aerial photographs by Valentina Bonizzi produced in Scotland, France and Italy.

Il film ‘Cartographers’ (2015) combina immagini aeree di vedute rurali e metropolitane con ambienti domestici al fine di rappresentare la transitorietà e la temporalità delle esperienze di persone le cui vite sono state modellate attraverso la migrazione sia fisicamente che immaginaria.

The film ‘Cartographers’ (2015) combines aerial imagery of rural and metropolitan views with domestic settings to signify transience and temporality within the experiences of people whose lives have been shaped through migration both physically and imaginatively.

Nelle loro parole, sentiamo come la loro consapevolezza e senso di se  trascende le ideologie e le convenzioni definite stati. Il film provoca considerazioni sulle nuove cartografie sociali, che solo ora stanno emergendo da un fenomeno storico radicato.

In their own words, we hear how their knowledge and sense of themselves transcend state-defined ideologies and conventions. The film provokes consideration of new social cartographies, which are only just emerging from a deeply-rooted historical phenomenon.
