Passing by Zé Marôvas

In the past, any tourist entering Badajoz in Portugal had to pass Zé Marôvas’ door – which would thus entice customers. Today, after the construction of the highway, Zé Marôvas remains waiting for hours without anyone going into his shop. ” Such is the synopsis of “Passing to Zé Marôvas” by Aurora Ribeiro, filmed in 2007 in Redondo with José Manuel Marôvas, based on an original idea by João Jorge Sarantopoulos (Tobis Prize for Best Short Film in Doclisboa ’09).

The Sound of Bells + Lecture

Honorable Mention Heritales – Short Documentary 2017

In Minas Gerais, Brazil, bell sounds set the pace of life of the residents of the historic cities, announcing time for work, rest, pray, and celebrate. Over 40 different bell rings are known in the region, and were nominated as Brazilian Intangible Cultural Heritage. The bell ringers, characters from the top of the towers, are known to have transformed bell rings over the centuries from their colonial origins and have mixed them with the strong African heritage in Brazil. The documentary is a poetic representation of religious experience in everyday life. The feature film The Sound of Bells is part of an expanded documentary project, which is pioneering the use of new media for the dissemination of the intangible heritage. Digital technology can support increased appreciation of cultural heritage, strengthen dialogue and understanding among cultures. How do younger generations react, interact or create new ways to express their cultural heritage? The project works with the combination of memory and new technologies, sound mapping and community engagement through a transmedia production that includes an online multimedia platform with sound cartography and innovative content, an interactive documentary, audiovisual public interventions on churches facades and an award-winning audio guide app for mobile devices.
