Followed by a hands-on workshop on GoPro cinematography:
GoPro cameras offer unprecedented vantage points to represent the ecologies in which we are embedded. Join us for a technical course followed by a formal exploration on the Mount-Royal, experimenting with the different points of view these small cameras allow for. This event is presented in partnership with L4E, Leadership for the Ecozoïc.
Octopus is an experimental, poetic and psychedelic movie about the passage between life and death. Entirely shot with a GoPro camera in Bocas del Toro, Panama, Octopus tells the story of a mourning experience. This is portrayed through the drowning of a being who choose to abandon the real, to leave the earth and to travel underwater into the collective unconsciousness. This soul will discover pure beauty but also the destruction of it because of pollution. Let us penetrate the depths and abyss of the Caribbean Sea, where the upside and downside are reversed, where there is no frontier anymore between dream and reality and where life and death are only one.
