CVC Workshop | Romina Paula: Language’s Migration
September 30 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Based on the concept of the migration of languages, this workshop seeks to reflect on a project in which an idea is translated/ transposed/made to migrate from one language to another, interrogating in the process its specific procedures. Each participant will choose a work that speaks to them and translate it into another language: thus, a novel might become a painting, a film, a short story, a song might become a video.
*To register for the workshop, please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org.
All are welcome!
Romina Paula (Buenos Aires, 1979) is an Argentine novelist, playwright, actor, and film and theater director. Her plays Algo de ruido hace (2007), El tiempo todo entero (2009), and Fauna (2013), as well as her novels Agosto (2009) and Acá todavía (2016), have received critical acclaim across borders. As an actor, she has appeared in films such as Santiago Mitre’s The Student (2011), Matías Piñeiro’s The Princess of France (2014), and Mariano Llinás La Flor (2018). Her first film as a director, De nuevo otra vez [Again Once Again] (2019), was nominated for a Bright Future award at the International Film Festival Rotterdam and won the San Sebastian Film Festival Horizontes Award. Her current film project, Gente de noche, was recently selected by San Sebastian’s 9th Europe-Latin America Co-Production Forum. Her works explore the intertwinement of cultural forms and embodied experience by bringing together disparate languages, genres, and aesthetic traditions, including autobiography, poetry, folklore, pop music, and German romanticism.
