Fabrizio Terranova proposes a first phase of his residency at BUDA, which will constitute the starting point of this experimental quest. A residency full of ghosts, dedicated to living spirits that need to be nourished. A residency to prepare a future film in honor of a beloved one who has disappeared.

Lecture by Fabrizio Terranova
Sat 11 June 2022 | 16:30-19:30

Speculative Fabulations* and other stories to take care of our dead

* after the name of the Master’s course « Narrations Spéculatives – Récits & Expérimentations » at the erg, Brussels

A short introduction to Speculative Fabulations with a particular focus on how to weave stories that are haunted by our dead. For the first time, Fabrizio Terranova will lay down all his first ideas, intuitions and intentions in order to sort them out on our big collective table.

This session will be accompanied by the otherworldly sounds of Lawrence Le Doux and followed by a little mix of this legendary Brussels DJ, author of all the soundtracks of Terranova’s movies.

Film programme in cooperation with Xavier Garcia Bardon.
