Louise Botkay studied at the National Film School of France (FEMIS). She has shot films in Haiti, Congo, Niger, Chad, Brazil and Europe, using her cell phone, video, super-8, 16 or 35 mm film that she developed herself. Her works were shown at festivals such as Oberhausen, Fid de Marseille, VidéoBrasil, and more. Her work A film for Ehuana won a prize from the State of North Rhine-Westaphalia, Germany.
Brazilian artist Louise Botkay and American artist Ken Rinaldo will talk about how they use their art to draw attention to current socio-political and ecological contradictions.
They will discuss how artists can articulate their criticism of existing grievances or their documentation and how they can reach social classes that are not directly connected with art and culture, for example.
