Transhumance, On the other side : migration, quests, dreams and travel
CURATOR: ARIANE PLANTE
The Transhumance, On the other side series was developed around the concept of transhumance. Beyond the literal definition of the term, which refers to the seasonal changing of pastures of a herd to find new places to feed, the concept of transhumance is approached from a poetic, open and multidimensional point of view. Transhumance, On the other side explores four sub-themes: migrations, quests, dreams and travels. It includes short and long form films of all genres (documentaries, fiction, animation, storytelling, essays and art films), and from different periods. Transhumance, as reflected in these sub-themes, evokes transmission and drives transformation. The series focuses on the issues of immigration, identity, dreams and quests, leading viewers to discover territories, stories, transformative life-changing journeys, and see what lies on the other side of multiple pathways.
