Filmmaking Seminar

This seminar, designed in collaboration with UnionDocs Center for Documentary Art and highlighting the recipients of the newly established UNDO Fellowship alongside filmmakers in the Festival selection, will explore radical filmmaking practices and the expanding languages of documentary cinema. Four open conversations, each led by a different scholar or critical writer, will engage the work of 10 artists presented at Doclisboa’19. Each session will focus on a discrete question of representation: of historical liberation movements; of absences and exclusions in the archive; of appropriated text, images, and culture; and of the physical, sensual processes of an embedded existence. Sessions will be recorded and included in a podcast produced by UnionDocs.
