This week, Formentera Art's Arturo Bandinelli is heading up a film production workshop for 12 youth aged 13 to 18. Signups were held through the Formentera Council's social centre for young people, the Casal de Joves.
Participants have set out to produce a music video for an original song by Juan Camilo Puerta, an 18-year-old resident of Formentera and rapper. The song's lyrics—a meditation on life on an island like Formentera—are set to an instrumental track by Eivissa-native Pedro Peter. The recording was made by MP MUSIC EIVISSA's Can Sabina Estudi.
The clip will be screened at Formentera Film, a festival of shorts, documentaries and video art from around the world that kicks off May 18 at 8.30pm in la Mola's main square. The remainder of the affair will take place in Sant Francesc's plaça de la Constitució May 19–21.
