Shooting, Sound Recording and Editing ‘Exquisite Corpse Collaborative Film’
This is a collaborative film inspired by a poetry game, the roots of which can be traced to the Surrealist/Dadaist Movement. Since 2020, Rouzbeh Rashidi and his students have made one collaborative film in his workshops and courses, culminating at the end of the classes. He designed a particular set of rules, methodologies, and mannerisms by which the film must be made. Participants will contribute a section to the final film, which will be screened and discussed at the end of the course.
