One Minute's Video 2023: companions
We dedicate this year’s call to our companions. To all our mates, friends, life colleagues, lovers. To those who support us when militancy presses and who bring us soup at home when we are sad. To the people with whom we share a fragment of life in a flat, in a café, on a bench, in a virtual chat room. To all those whose names we don’t know, but with whom we are united by a common struggle. To those, we huddle next to on our way home from work. To all the non-human companions with whom we live together. To those with whom we collectivize care. To the friends we have lost and those we have yet to meet.
One Minute’s video is an invitation to take the cameras, to film and to generate your own senses about a particular subject. It is an open call to create with your friends, alone or in virtuality. The video of the minute embraces the philosophy DIY/DIWT, free and easy creation, the domestic, the public, the collective … and the pleasure.
The videos received during the open call become a collective and kaleidoscopic piece that brings together different experiences around a starting idea. Every year we renew the invitation to film with a new thematic proposal.
One Minute’s Video is also an archive of free images that the participants have been nourishing since 1997 with their videos. This online archive invites to rereadand revision its contents in order to remain alive and vibrant.
