Documentary Summer School


Now in its 22nd edition, the Documentary Summer School (DSS 2021) is jointly organized by the Institute of Media and Journalism (IMeGof the Università della Svizzera italiana and Locarno Film Festival, in collaboration with the Semaine de la critique. The DSS will take place from 9th to 14th August, and it will explore different research and production relevant issues concerning documentary cinema. Given the great pervasiveness with which currently images and representations spread, for some years, the DSS has decided to focus on the theme of ethics in documentary filmmaking. Given the relevance of the topic, this year a privileged space will be dedicated to the intertwining of ethics, gender, documentary – and, generally, communication when it represents the other.
