Astrolabio.doc: A new Documentary Market for Europe & Middle-East | babelmed Astrolabio.doc: A new Documentary Market for Europe & Middle-East | babelmedAstrolabio.doc is an initiative divided structured into two parts: a documentary festival with fair features; and a professional market for documentary projects development, selling and co production.

Europe and the Middle East have been the cradle of great cultures, with their rich variety of habits and traditions. Showing this fascinating world will be a contribution to the break-down of the many deceptive and misleading prejudices which often affect us .

The astrolabe was invented by ancient Greeks to measure celestial angles, was further improved by the Arabs and spread in Europe in Renaissance epoch. It gives the name to this initiative as it represents an example of cultural exchange and also because it’s used in order to explore an unknown universe, in whose presence we are all equal in our differences.

Thursday, October, 4th, opening day, a lecture about challenges and difficulties of information floods between Europe and Middle-East, and alternative ways, will be held. The lecture will begin by a projection of scenes from the Documentary movie Control Room (by Jehane Noujaim, 2004), and an introduction by its distributor in Italy, Dario Barone. Then, will follow interventions of representatives of Al-Manar and Kalima TV, Angela Lano (manager of Infopal.it), and film-maker Monica Maurer.
