THE CONSERVATION OF ECOLOGICAL BALANCE

What place do humans occupy within the ecosystem of planet earth? We are aware that egocentrism or Eurocentrism is unreal. However, it is often difficult for us to look away from this way of doing and thinking. Can the new audiovisual narratives applied to the documentary help us to feel more connected to nature, to feel that we are one more part?

INJUSTICES AND ABUSE OF POWER

Audiovisual as a weapon to denounce injustices. If the audiovisual in general and the documentary in particular have the potential to denounce and make us aware of unjust realities, can we use augmented reality to increase our empathy? Could these new narratives be a tool for transforming social documentaries, from the act of denouncing, to actively fighting, by appealing directly to our mirror neurons?

THE LEGACY OF WARS AND COLONIALISM
 
Imagination as a tool to heal the wounds of the past. One way to overcome the past is to understand it and not forget it. The recovery of historical memory is essential so as not to fall back into the same trap. Can we through new narratives increase this fashion experience that is not only imprinted in our brain memory but also in our emotional one?
