Watch the documentary film Expeditions by Anna M. Bofarull online.

Expeditions is a complex world all of its own. It brings together highly diverse experiences, from visual art to sociological research, by unveiling encounters and happenings. But Expeditions is first and foremost an account of daily life in the neighbourhoods of Ponent (Tarragona, Spain), Maurepas (Rennes, France) and Praga (Warsaw, Poland), as part of an artistic research initiative.

Artists, social science researchers, teachers, but also children and people living in these areas worked together for several weeks with a common aim: to truly uncover daily reality in these so-called working-class neighbourhoods and to try to portray the representations and imagined images attributed to them. Expeditions was thus a theatre of creative, scientific and pedagogical processes; exploration initiatives; and reflections carried out in the public sphere, all with the aim of getting to know these areas better.

My camera constantly followed the creators and people involved in these “expeditions”. I offer a cinematographic account of a european cooperation project characterised by diverse and multiple experiences, with a view to showing the daily reality of these neighbourhoods in Tarragona, Rennes and Warsaw.

Anna M. Bofarull, January 2014.
