 Faber Navalis - Maurizio Borriello 002

Título: Faber Navalis - the Boatbuilder

Direção/Ano: Maurizio Borriello/ 2016

Sinopse: Faber Navalis is Latin for Boatbuilder: words in an ancient language for describing an ancient profession. It might seem just a video about the restoration of a wooden ship, but the actual subject of this documentary-film is the state of mind of its shipwright: an Italian researcher in maritime ethnography who decided to learn boat building skills in order to understand the intangible knowledge hidden behind the construction of a wooden ship. This film is an experiment in autobiographical ethnography in which the shipwhright is also the filmmaker: a combination of aesthetics and ethnography which attempts to bring out an inner dimension that may only with difficulty, if it all, be rendered with propositional prose.
