Journey to the city of light - Inhabiting Uncertainty

Federico’s research publication is titled “Journey to the City of Light”; a printed shooting diary of the second act of his lm ‘Lightseekers’. In it, he portrays his visit to a spiritual sect to which her mother belongs with both the intention of experiencing her beliefs and making a lm that reects on the fanaticism phenomenon. In this sense, Federico views not only his lm, but also his methodology as a pilgrimage, with dierent stages and stops. Since making a lm can also be a phased process, several methodological possibilities arise to reect and critically dialogue with himself as he changes through time.

In this sense, the outcomes of his research (RP, Film project and Visual presentation) are a sequence of dierent experiments under one same umbrella: the praising of uncertainty as the primordial force that enables creation. He considers them dierent approaches to one same core experience.

Coming from the lm industry, the process of research through searching for the lm meant a huge change in his working paradigm that led him to a deep questioning of his idea of authorship. The value of error, the unpredictable and change in a creative process shaped the nal form of his lm, and the deep ethical concerns he went through pushed him to restore his forgotten shooting diary to reect about the worth of getting lost.
