This two-week residency is set up to help like-minded artists from multi-disciplines develop their practice in a relaxed, yet productive environment. The peaceful village of Atina, situated 154km from Rome in the province of Frosinone-Lazio, benefits from natural darkness, natural beauty and is a great spot for viewing the Moon, stars and meteor showers.

One of the challenging aspects of self-portraiture can be tackling the technicalities of it all: how and where to place yourself in the frame, composing and taking the shot. A lot of my own instant film work has been reliant on having long legs and big toes to press the shutter release cable out of shot. These elements are heightened when using instant film because you need to use up some film to see what you've got and what to change - if anything. This is also part of the fun and opens you up to embracing serendipity and even mistakes. There's nothing that says you even need to be in a self-portrait to call it a self-portrait. Sharing a part of yourself, a memory or a story doesn't mean that you need to be visible in the image to do that, just the conductor.
In celebration of National Hispanic Heritage Month, and in coordination with UGA's LACSI Latin American & Caribbean Studies Institute - UGAand Romance Languages at UGA, Cine presented the work of Latino American authors
Latin American Film Series / Athens, Georgia
Ni Aquí Ni Allá is a multimedia performance and installation giving voice to Atlanta's Latinx community.
"We will revisit our childhood memories, our family traditions, our spiritual roots through a lens polished with subversion and decolonization. These are the moments that colored our lives and firmly grounded us in the cultures and narratives we have become geographically removed from. Ni Aquí Ni Allá is a window onto a vital facet of American culture, and we welcome people of all backgrounds to indulge in our uniquely American blend of Latin cultures and traditions, uprooted and replanted. Through nostalgia and symbolic repurposing, Ni Aquí Ni Allá is a space for defining, decolonizing, and reclaiming our Latinx identity in all of its prismatic splendor."
