About the event
Challenging the distinction between documentary and fiction, the masterclass will instruct participants on how to make strong conceptual and esthetical choices in situations of limited means of production. Students will gain insight on the development of different approaches to cinematography. Cinematographer and photographer, Stephanos Mangriotis, will guide the audience through his artistic practice which questions the conventional distinction between documentary and fiction.
Stephanos Mangriotis is a freelance cinematographer, photographer and director. In his personal projects, he uses photography, film and multimedia forms to create stories about identity, borders and marginality.
Stephanos’ most recent work as a cinematographer, the film Galb Echaouf (2021), has been featured at Visions du Réel, IDFA, Montreal International Documentary Festival, among other venues and won the best short documentary at DOXA and Sharjah Film Festival. His first short film, as both director and cinematographer, Blue Sky from Pain (2016) was selected in numerous international festivals including Film Festival Rotterdam, Journées Cinématographiques de Carthage in Tunisia and Jihlava International Documentary Festival.
As a photographer, Stephanos’s work has been presented in several international art venues and exhibitions, including The Rencontres d’Arles and the National Museum of European and Mediterranean Civilisations (MuCEM). In collaboration with the non-profit organization Dekadrage, he coordinated a long-term photography workshop in Marseille (France) with people suffering from mental illnesses. This work was turned into a book entitled 4 years of Madness presented at the Athens Photo Festival.
