The Moving Image Laboratory is part of FUSO INSULAR, in co production with Arquipélago - Contemporary Arts Center. It is aimed at the Azorean community interested in the cinematographic art, with the objective of creating new video art works.

From July to September, participants will have the opportunity to deepen their knowledge about the history of the moving image and create their own videos, under the guidance of artists Yuri Firmeza and André Laranjinha.

A Brazilian film director, professor and researcher based in Lisbon, Firmeza has extensive experience in the field of moving image, with works that push the boundaries between fiction, the possible and the real. André Laranjinha, a visual artist who lives and works in São Miguel, has a degree in Fine Arts from the University of Lisbon and works in cinema, video, visual arts, graphic arts and illustration.

At first, and based on his own work, Yuri Firmeza will be responsible for the theoretical component of the Laboratory, which will serve as a basis for the development of individual projects. The practical orientation will be in charge of André Laranjinha, with the technical support of Arquipélago - Contemporary Arts Center.

Participation in the Laboratory is free of charge and will take place at Arquipélago - Contemporary Arts Center, in Ribeira Grande.
