Educational documentary project de Joanot Cortés, Jordi Daví, Nicole Balm and Felip Vidal

During the months of October, November and December 2011 within ACVIC'S programme, a workshop on documentary creation was developed at Mercat de la Plaça Major de Vic as a meeting place and the nerve centre for commercial exchange in the city.


There, work was done on the practise of documentary-making, starting with strategies of research, narrative and editing, applying an anthropological vision.

With all the documentary material recorded for the duration of the workshop, a documentary production A Mercat! Is now under proposal, which will present the different stories, people and products from the Vic Market, by means of, or through which, several educational activities will be developed.
