Vietnam, Water and Puppets
About my project. The main objective of the project is the diffusion of international cultural heritages through digital media. Since August 2011, short videos, images, texts and maps are uploaded on this blog-cumentary, which represents a sort of collection of notes, what I learned about Water Puppets Theatre in Vietnam. My first objective is popularizing and advancing the knowledge of this special kind of theatre. Internet technologies will provide me the possibility to potentially talk with many people all over the world, more then any other media. Shootings will be also employed for the realization of a more traditional documentary for cinema projection. This documentary will be likely ready by March 2012. Why I choosed Water Puppetry. Water Puppetry Theatre talks about Vietnamese traditions, and at the same time it is a tradition itself. As a Western person who want to talk about Eastern customs, I need the aid of a medium, a filter, which will help me to deeply understand Vietnamese culture: Puppetry Theatre will work as my medium, and at the same time it will be the main subject for my documentary as a precious cultural treasure to document and diffuse.
