The seventh session of the Cinedebate live, which will be held this Friday (29), at 18:30 pm, will have as its theme the film Where have the swallows gone ?, by director Mari Corrêa. The short won the Refúgios e Mudanças Award, at the Entretodos Human Rights Festival, in 2016.

The debate will have simultaneous translation in pounds, which will be carried out by the servers Pérola Juliana de Abreu Medeiros, from Câmpus Guarulhos and Lucas Delbello, from Campos do Jordão. Professor Aline Kapp, from Barretos, will present the live.

The film addresses the theme of climate change and has the Xingu Indians as protagonists. Check out the synopsis: the climate is changing, the heat is increasing. The Xingu Indians observe the signs that are everywhere. Trees no longer bloom, the fire spreads through the forest, cicadas no longer sing announcing the rain because the heat has cooked their eggs. The fruits of the fields are spoiling before they grow. As they look at the devastating effects of these changes, they wonder what their grandchildren's future will be like.

Remembering that the film is not shown at the time of the debate, so those who have not yet watched and want to participate in the discussions can access it beforehand at the available link here. Cinedebate Live will be shown by  IFSP channel on YouTube. 

About Cinedebate Live

The IFSP Extension Dean (PRX) is promoting a virtual chat with directors of short and feature films, through Cinedebate Live. Conversations take place every Friday at 18:30 pm. Each week an IFSP teacher will be invited to present the live.

According to Priscila Aquino, coordinator of socio-cultural actions at PRX, the activity aims to bring IFSP students closer to the audiovisual activities that the provost has been promoting since 2017, in partnership with the Festival Entretodos. She stressed that this quarantine period is a favorable time to discuss films and open dialogues, since audiovisual works are being so sought after in these days of isolation.

According to Priscila, Cinedebate Live can also collaborate with students and servers who want to submit short films for the II IFSP Short Film Festival of Citizenship and Human Rights, which is open until June 22.
