The aim of the Poetics and Politics symposium is to strenghten dialogue between theory and practice in documentary film. We wish to promote a forum for discussions on the possibilities and approaches on practice-based research and theorizing that stems from artistic work. Filmmakers and scholars interested in conceptual approaches in documentary film are welcome to attend.
Vietnamese-American filmmaker and theorist Trinh T. Minh-ha will participate in the event and give a keynote lecture on Monday, April 22. On Tuesday morning, April 23, professor Brian Winston from the UK will give a second keynote. The programme consists of 10 parallell sessions where filmmakers and academics present their work. In addition, two recent documentary films are screened.
Registration: 85 euros (includes lunches, coffees, get-together party)
