Screening “Unmappable” in Rio

Poster_Unmappable_MDMD_Rio2015The Art & Cartography commission will be pretty active at the 27th International Cartographic Conference in Rio. We are organizing A workshop entitled Mapping Ephemeralities / Ephemeral Cartographies (Aug. 21-22, 2015) +  a few paper sessions + our commission meeting on August 25th (17:20 to 18:30) + a film screening.

Indeed, following a tradition started in 2009, this year we will be screening “Unmappable” a 20 min. documentary directed by Diane Hodson and Jasmine Luoma, that presents an original perspective on the life of the most famous (and controversial) contemporary critical cartographer: Denis Wood. This “thought-provoking and disturbing” documentary (as described by Wired) has received several awards in film festivals. This screening will be preceded by the world premiere of a short collective film entitled “Let’s get lost.” This “cartomentary” is about the secret development of a multimentional mapping device designed to map fictional places…

Both movies will be screened during a special event that will take place at the 27th ICC in Rio on Wed. Aug. 26th from 12:30 – 13:30 (room: Plenary 1). This should be a great event!
