With the title “Emergencies of the Global South”, FestFoto’s 13th edition proposes a programming focused on contemporary visual reflection on the processes that throughout history has limited visibility and the exercise of citizenship and the emergence of movements that claim the opening up new possibilities for the construction and exercise of social, economic, environmental and cultural rights.
