Finally it’s here: the Original Cultures Bologna ’09 documentary. 20 minutes giving an insight into what happened during one sunny week in early June ’09 at the first ever Original Cultures event.
For one week we brought together six artists from the UK, Italy and Japan and the fields of visual arts and music. Om Unit, Tatsuki, Tayone, Ericailcane, Will Barras and DEM spent 3 days creating new works exclusively for a final showcase on day 4, at the same time taking part in workshops and seminars around the city allowing the public an insight into their creative process as well as the cultural exchange fostered by the event.
This documentary, filmed and edited by The Slow Breakfast, aims to give those who couldn’t be there an idea of what happened (and those who were there a nice little trip down memory lane) with edits of the 3 days of workshops, the final showcase and the live painting session which took place on the 5th (unofficial) day. All of this is soundtracked by music from the showcase and also includes some interviews with the musicians about their experience of the week in Bologna.
You can stream the documentary above or download it below both in HD quality. Be aware the file weights 750mb so make sure you got a fast connection.
Massive thanks to all the artists, staff and crew who made this event possible. Also big thanks to our official partners, media sponsors and supporters.
