Abstract (English)

"The impulse behind Documentary Reframed: Process, Politics, and Aesthetics is to explore how contemporary, independent cultural producers in Canada and abroad are testing the boundaries of documentary conventions in the post- Moore era of documentary popularity, aesthetic freedom, new technologies, and self-reflexivity. Fifteen documentary works were selected from approximately 150 films and videos accessed through independent distributors in Canada and the United States, and through contact with cultural producers in Canada and Germany. The thematic structure — Found Footage, Psycho-spiritual Realities, Encountering the Other, and Re-imaging/imagining History — emerged from the curator’s intention to discern themes within the works that most departed from straightforward documentary modes. The selected works tend to push generic boundaries in terms of subject matter, formal conventions, and/or production processes." -- p. 4 of the document.
