Ambassador Project | Timeframes Jan 30, 2015

A project by Ambassadors Seth Garrison, Theresa Crim, Neil Ferron, Shin Yui Pai, and OtB Development Intern Matthew Manowski.

This project is a result o fa discussion about influences of film on our personalities and reality - specifically from the perspectives of an artist/creator. Mariano Pensotti works in fiction but yet part of his subtext realizes moments of real lives - for example, using the split stage in his work Cineastas. Our question became: How do the fictions we encounter as an audience influence or impact our reality?

The Work of Mariano Pensotti Jan 29, 2015

What are the moments we wished we had lived -but we didn’t?
What are the songs that should have accompanied those unlived moments? 
How can we categorize the lives we could have had but we didn’t?

Observers at a train station. An encyclopedia of wishes. Six neighbors in an apartment building. Theater and death. James Joyce.
Pensotti's work encapsulates all this and more.

"Could something be built in theatre that actually lasts?" Director Mariano Pensotti on Cineastas Jan 27, 2015

I am the ultimate artist
My time is personal, excessive.
If a guy lives until he is fifty,
I want to spend fifty years filmmaking.
Leonardo Favio

I started with fiction and discovered the real;
but behind the real is again fiction.
Jean-Luc Godard

Only the ephemeral lasts.
Ingmar Bergman
