Jumana Manna & Sille Storihle “The Goodness Regime”
Vdrome is an online platform that offers regular, high quality screenings of films and videos directed by visual artists and filmmakers, whose production lies in-between contemporary art and cinema.
Each screening is presented during a limited period, as in a movie theatre. Vdrome makes available a program of exceptional artists’s films and videos that are selected due to their importance, quality and innovative strength, many of which are only shown in the context of film festivals, exhibitions or specific surveys, being therefore of very limited access. Vdrome is an initiative conceived and promoted by Mousse.
Curators: Edoardo Bonaspetti, Jens Hoffmann, Andrea Lissoni and Filipa Ramos
Managing Editor: Enrico Boccioletti
2013, 21min, HD video
Shot in Norway and Palestine, The Goodness Regime investigates the foundations of the ideology and the representation of a country adopting the most corporate gimmicks to brand itself as a peace-making nation. Deconstructing the arcanes of the Oslo Accords and unveiling the process of a national myth construction, the film looks at the political stages, the roles and the scenes through the very empirical spectrum of theatre, combining children’s performances with archive sound recordings from diplomatic speeches.
Vdrome is kindly supported by Polyeco Contemporary Art Initiative for the year 2016.
