<nettime-ann> On the Bride's side. The civil disobedience on stage


Sorry for any crosspostings

On the Brideâs side.
The civil disobedience on stage

The Digicult interview to the most ambitious crowdfunding campaign for an indipendent documentary in Italy: "On the Bride's side", written, directed and produced by Antonio Augugliaro, Gabriele Del Grande and Khaled Soliman Al Nassiry.

A call to the media culture international community: let's help them to produce the movie for the Venice Biennale through Indiegogo, http://goo.gl/vlHigs.

A film manifesto, the story of 4 days trip through European borders, to bring 5 illegal Palestinian and Syrian immigrants from Milan to Stockholm. Confusing them amongst a transnational group of guests to a fake marriage. Twenty thousand deaths in the Mediterranean. It has to stop. These people are not victims of fate or storms, but of laws. And the disobedience has to start, which is why they became traffickers for a week and helped five Syrian war refugees continue their journey inside Fortress Europe. When this film comes out, they could be sentenced to 15 years in prison for aiding and abetting illegal immigration.

They believe there is a community of people in Europe and around the Mediterranean who hope that one day this sea will stop swallowing up the lives of its travellers and go back to being a sea of peace, where all are free to travel and where human beings are no longer divided up into legal and illegal. This community exists. The people we met in our journey across Europe belong to it, and so do the people reading this page. There are many more of us than we think, and this is the film we needed.

This is the whole interview to the directors of this film manifesto: for all those who believe that travelling is not a crime, and that the real crime is averting your eyes to death by travel on our Mediterranean beaches, and deaths by war in Syria.
