Island of Vis – Mamma Mia Theme Park?

first_imgThe island of Vis and the town of Komiža are specific topologies within the Croatian and Adriatic geographical and cultural-historical context and the wider, Mediterranean cultural-historical and geopolitical environment which, through identity created as a result of cultural stratification that has taken place over the centuries, offers a rich socio-cultural landscape.Sudden events, such as the invasion of Hollywood film production and the arrival of a film set on the island can create a rift within local culture and become a source of stress to community members, thereby compromising local identity. This is confirmed by the example of the small Greek island of Skopelos, once known for its white prunes, olives, pears, fragrant pines, silence, authentic small towns on the hills, empty beaches, taverns and pristine island life. After becoming the film set for the shooting of the first part of the film Mamma Mia, it became a popular tourist destination, with the mass and uncontrolled arrival of tourists completely devastating the island. Hotels are booked months in advance and bars and restaurants use the image of the film neglecting the local identity. Every few hours the ship unloads new groups of Mamma Mia fans. The overcapacity of resources resulted in an increase in prices, which deprived the locals of a quality life, while the sudden overcrowding changed the habits of the local community and thus endangered the identity of the island. For example, residents were accustomed to going to cafes and taverns that were the center of social life. However, after the film was made, such a way of life almost disappeared. The locals could no longer afford the way of life they were used to. Even store prices have risen dramatically. In addition, instead of promoting the natural beauty and authentic way of life of the island, its architecture and history, the tourist offer was taken over by film tourism based on the artificial world of attractions. The presentation of the island after the shooting was based exclusively on film images based on a set of symbols, information, ideas and impressions and the tourist offer that distances the site from the authentic Kefalonian identity.The focus of the filmmaker is the film and its success, not the consequences within the community and place after they stop filming. They “create the film they want, not the tourist image that…. the community wants. When the film, as is the case with the Greek “mama mia” island, becomes part of a not necessarily well-controlled promotion of the place and if the elements of the film (actors, landscape perceived as film scenography, narrative and symbolic context) become the focus of tourist interest and attract film fans tourism – the impact on the local community raises questions of authenticity, identity and representation of cultural and natural heritage.Photo: screengoblin.comIn order to point out the possibility of a similar scenario on the island of Vis, within the EU project Participatory Art for Invisible Communities (PAIC), which involves partners from Croatia, Denmark, Slovenia and Spain and deals with the identity of marginalized communities with the aim of reactivating and revitalizing which took place in Komiža during the filming of Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again !, posters were printed that oppose the symbols of Hollywood and the powerful film industry and social and cultural development of the local community and raise the issue of preserving and presenting identity through “Hollywoodization” an escape to a different “world,” creating a deceptive, pseudo-reality that creates an artificial and false relationship to the locality. Because the island of Vis these days is not only becoming the Greek island of Kefalos on which the scenography for the film is being built, but it is turning into a fictional Mamma Mia island – Kalokairi. Instead of promoting its pristine natural beauty, culture, architecture, history and identity, it is in danger of being promoted which will harm rather than contribute to its cultural and sustainable tourism development.However, posters pointing to the possibility of losing authenticity and identity under the pressure of film tourism (which most often has the characteristics of uncontrolled mass tourism) and questioning the impact the film industry has on small island communities have stirred filmmakers and they have demanded their removal. Thus, on Vis, those who point to the problem and want to convince the general public and island communities that the authenticity of the place is an important aspect of social development and maintenance of local identity and sense of place (sense of place) have become a problem.Preserving heritage as evidence of one’s own past and local culture is intrinsically important and can become a strong connecting element of community life, so it is important to ensure local cultural values ​​and mediate past, present and future through culture, and preserve and strengthen the island’s specific atmosphere and characteristics. A powerful film industry that distorts the cultural life of the community, threatening to replace authenticity with fabricated identity, jeopardizes the possibility of development based on one’s own values.Author: Irena Sertić, PAIC project coordinatorlast_img read more

Cricket News Jasprit Bumrah Reveals He Relies On Advice From Ishant Sharma, Mohammed Shami To Hone Skills

first_imgJasprit Bumrah took his fifth five-wicket haul in Tests.Bumrah became the third Indian after Harbhajan and Pathan to take Test hat-trick.Bumrah has taken fifers in South Africa, Australia, England and West Indies. For all the Latest Sports News News, Cricket News News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps. New Delhi: Jasprit Bumrah has had a magnificent start to his Test career. The Gujarat pacer is the only Asian bowler to take a five-wicket haul in South Africa, England, Australia and West Indies on his first tour. Bumrah is the quickest Indian bowler to get to 50 wickets and his display of bowling in the West Indies has gladdened fast bowling purists who see this as a revival in the art of fast bowling. In the second Test at Antigua, Bumrah became the third Indian after Harbhajan Singh and Irfan Pathan to take a hat-trick in Tests and he ended with a haul of 6/27, his best in Tests. Bumrah has revealed that he relies on the advice of seniors like Ishant Sharma and Mohammed Shami and stated that the current bowling unit is very happy. “Ishant has played a lot more cricket than all of us, (Mohammed) Shami has played a lot, I’m the new guy, so I try and ask questions. I ask them, they’ve played here before, so ‘what works in different conditions?’ ‘If the wicket is not doing anything what should we do?’ What different plans are to be there. You have to assess the wicket, what are the conditions, what works here. Here the wicket has a lot more bounce. In such bouncy wickets you can become greedy and bowl short but you shouldn’t do that. You should look to bowl in good areas and create pressure and try and bowl full. That was the plan going into the first innings,” Bumrah said. In the first innings, Virat Kohli was awestruck by Bumrah’s bowling and it was his instinct to take the review which helped Bumrah achieve history. “The captain’s confidence gives you a lot of self-belief. When you bowl, you can express yourself, you can try whatever you want to do. That gives you a lot of confidence, not only me but each and every bowler is being backed by him so much. As a bowling unit we are very happy and then we have the freedom to do what we want,” Bumrah said. Also Read | India vs West Indies 1st Test: Virat Kohli surpasses Sourav Ganguly, equals MS Dhoni with Antigua winThe right-arm pacer said bowling with the Dukes Ball in England had already given him practice to utilise the Duke Ball brilliantly on the Caribbean pitches which assisted pace bowling. Also Read | Jasprit Bumrah becomes second-fastest Indian to 100 ODI wickets in World Cup clash vs Sri Lanka”I played a lot of cricket in England, we played a lot of Test matches, we bowled with the duke ball.

So, that experience helped me out,” Bumrah said.West Indies are currently 45/2 in their pursuit of 468 and Virat Kohli’s Indian cricket team are all set to take a 2-0 lead in the Test series and end their tour on the ultimate high.center_img highlightslast_img read more
