Special Mention Best Short Film
for MAKING A LIVING IN THE DRY SEASON
Frames Film Festival, Stockholm
Making a Living in the Dry Season is a documentary produced in the context of a PhD research in Social Anthropology with Visual Media, at the University of Manchester. Taking advantage of all stages of the film production as a research method, the final film portrays the development of a double notion of labour in a highland village in Southern Angola and during the dry season: the usual making a living and the exceptional making of a doll, at the filmmaker’s request.
