Dates: March 7/14/21, 2013The screening series BETWEEN DOCUMENT AND FICTION examines contemporary strategies in film and video, within the realm of visual arts. “The distinction between fact and fiction has become thin and at a times blurred, in part because artists have broken into the realm of documentary photography and film alongside journalists, and filmmakers. (…) By exploring limits and crossovers, artists are analyzing and questioning the effect of the documentary image, turning it inside out and adapting it for personal, artistic and social aims.
-Frits Gierstberg in Documentary Now!, Nai Publishers, NL These 3 screenings select and show productions from around the world that redefine our relationship with the tenuous line between fiction and documentary. It aims to move beyond established categories, and to generate a moving image platform in which distinct voices rely on a common premise – the transformation of images from a documental approach into a more personal and fictional dimension, or from an initial poetic and subjective field into one more anchored on the apprehension of the real. Participant artists and filmmakers: USA, Canada, China, Australia, and Europe (Belgium, Denmark, Germany, Norway, Portugal, and Switzerland).
