The programming tackles various current issues, with a criterion of analysis that is profound, multidisciplinary and integrating.  Issues that are often present in the agenda of the large media holdings, but with the deficiency of reducing them to opposing pairs that distort or dilute the problem.

This website is a unique screen into which we can reflect ourselves, and which takes advantage of the web’s potential, allowing the spreading and interaction of its video, audio and text contents, reducing distances and time.

TVgrafías represents as well a link, a meeting point for different organizations, official and non-official institutions, and individuals that work towards common goals, developing strategic alliances to carry out projects in the social and audiovisual fields.

Multimedia Notebooks

It is one of the privileged spaces in the website.  Made up of researchs about different problems of social relevance deriving from essential questions.
Each topic is amplified using the multimedia potential: a written, radio or audiovisual interview can be included as a complement to a fictional feature film, a scientific essay, a photographic exhibition, a journalistic article or a poem.  They are voices, images, words, combining to comprehend complex human realities


Ad hoc writers

This space gathers the labor of diverse groups which, being part of the reality they deal with, are qualified to analyze, approach, and display it.  It is their unique point of view that counts here, their vision of the world, instead of that of the “outsider” and of the “objective” observer.

TVgrafías carries out audiovisual and journalistic training workshops, aimed towards groups in a situation of vulnerability, which prepares them to develop their own audiovisual, written or radio accounts, thus documenting their particular realities.

There are also research and reflection teams formed to approach conflicts that are common to the participating individuals and groups:  Workshops about solving conflicts through non-violence, workshops to promote reflection about crime, Citizen duties and rights, Domestic violence, Addictions, Sexuality, etc.  The coordination of such groups is in the hands of professionals coming from diverse social disciplines.

Parallel to the audiovisual learning process, participants advance with the analysis of their particular, individual, family and group conflicts, and in the search for common solutions.  Thus, they develop their potential in one or more areas, technical or artistic, building work teams that allow for a more profound approach to the task at hand and to sustain it over time.

The resulting works are displayed in this space.

TVgrafías: human rights in the south, from the south.

SOME OF THE WORKS
 
HIDDEN SOULS
(Documentary video, 60min.) - 2003

Directed and coordinated by Pablo Nisenson
and Manuel Mingo.

 
 


  The documentary was born of the 6-month experience in "El Reparo”, a drogs-addiction institution located in San Miguel, Buenos Aires. It captures on film how a group of young residents learn the process of making audiovisual presentations as well as the result of their work. Also, it reflects how they live in the institution, their stories, their worries and struggle, their fears and expectations.
 
PRISONERS
(Documentary video, 8min.) - 2005

Directed and coordinated by Pablo Nisenson and Manuel Mingo.
Camera operator and photographer: Javier De Silvio.

 
 
 
  The work results from the experience of showing “The sacred cry” - a movie starring young prisoners - to a group of women on remand, in a police station in Greater B.A. One of them - Marisa - is one of the protagonists in the movie, as well. They are overwhelmed by emotion as they identify with the life stories they have seen. Later on, some of them tell their own stories.
The film mirrors reality as history repeats itself endlessly.
This documentary gives an account of what happened there.
 
NEWS 11
(Documentary, video) - 1995

Directed and coordinated by Pablo Nisenson
and Patricia Hart.
Editor, camera operator and photographer:
Javier De Silvio

 
 
 
 
The documentary stems from the experience with a group of 7th graders from a poor school in Buenos Aires. By way of playful proposals, the participants get to learn how to handle video equipment, put forward ideas to be made into short movies and, in the end, shoot them. This process allows us to step into their world, their experience of life, their relationships and, ultimately, the way they live and think.
