Explaining and promoting village goods on film

International Village Shop
Villagers of Zvizzchi, Wapke Feenstra, Antje Schiffers and the 2015 ceraramics-team. And huge thank-you to the shop-committee of Made in Zvizzchi.

For the International Village Shop we tend to introduce visitors or possible shop clients to the stories of the village goods on offer. But what to do when none of us is around? How to provide a proper sales performance and the popular authentic story telling?

For the МЕЖДУНАРОДНЫЙ СЕЛСКИ МАГАЗИН at Bogorodskoe Exhibition Hall as part of the 6. Moscow Biennale of Contemporary Art, we developed a promotional film with our partners in Zvizzchi: They present their new local ceramics as well as Frogbutterspoons from Höfen, Farmers´Chinaware from Spain or the Ittinger Ei, in Russia renamed to Functionless Egg "Secret", using the stories we passed on. Convincing advertisement, based on hearsay knowledge.

The film was not only popular in Moskow, but helped to increase shop promotion on many occasions in many countries. The film is for that reason also available with subtitles in German and English.
