“CREATING COMORIA – a documentary on the Franco-Comorian music group Afropa in Marseilles” – the film which resulted from our audiovisual fieldwork conducted before the official start of research project POCUTRAS has been shown in Bayreuth in June 2014, in Vienna in October 2014, at various occasions in Marseille in winter 2014/15 and recently parts of the film have been shown as part of a presentation at a conference in Innsbruck (March 2015).
Each screening provided us with lots of feedback and numerous changes were made in reaction to these. The changes are probably most visible in the continuous shortening of the film which was first shown with a length of 96 minutes, later with 86 minutes and is now down to 76 minutes… And even the title of the film changed as a result of this process… :-)
Our most recent achievement is the blog where the film is presented, at present a password is still required – please don’t hesitate to contact us in case you want to watch it!
