Authorship. Authority. Authenticity. Recent Documentaries from Elsewhere
"Santiago" with Eduardo Thomas and João Moreira Salles
The consistent abuse of hierarchical structures within the field of documentary filmmaking has led to a redundancy in the (re)production of conventional notions such as “authorship”, “authority” and “authenticity”. Curator Eduardo Thomas presents contemporary experimental documentaries further eroding these seemingly immutable conventions.
D: João Moreira Salles, BR 2007, 80 min.
In his portrait of his family’s butler Santiago, Salles measures to what extent a filmmaker is willing to wield directorial needs, and to what extent a subject will yield to these demands.
