Commissioned by The One Minutes Foundation
From 2008 till 2010, and in 2013 again, I worked for the international video project City One Minutes: video portraits of cities in 24 minutes in which each minute represents one hour of the day. Together with local artists and filmmakers I realized City One Minutes in Medellín, Johannesburg, Port-au-Prince, Buenos Aires, Rio de Janeiro and Amman. See pictures. In these cities I worked as coordinator, curator, director, filmer and editor. I also contributed with my own one minute videos to the portraits of Amsterdam (Netherlands), Beijing (China), Havana (Cuba) and Lisbon (Portugal). The video project with 200 City One Minutes had its premiere at the World Expo 2010 in Shanghai.
