Why is Mr W. Laughing? (RAI Film Festival Ambassador screening)

31 January 2019, 7:30pm – 9:30pm


WHY IS MR W. LAUGHING? is a portrait of three members of a community of artists with different disabilities. Rather than making a film about inclusion, the film itself was produced inclusively. In an open collaborative journey through the pictorial worlds of the three artists, a focus was set on their aesthetic obsessions and perspectives through their own videography. As a result of the collaborative approach, the film is an eclectic mix of materials and techniques, interview situations interwoven with observational episodes, auto-fiction and performance, home videos of the protagonists and their own musical compositions.

The film was nominated for the EVA Award (Excellence in Visual Anthropology) at Ethnocineca 2017 (Vienna)

Directed by Jana Papenbroock with Horst Wässle, Michael Gerdsmann, Bernhard Krebs

This event is organised by RAI FILM FESTIVAL ambassador Seyed Samavati in collaboration with Brunel University and the RAI FILM FESTIVAL 2019 anthropology / ethnography / archaeology.
