Shared Authority. New possibilities in documentary media.
A panel at the CHASHAMA FILM FESTIVAL
679 Third Avenue (at the corner of 43rd Street)
This panel will explore new collaborative models for non-fiction and present a collection of very interesting media experiments, including: Yellow Arrow, a global public art project; Capitol of Punk, a documentary embedded at 10 sites in Washington DC; Stages, an award-winning doc directed by 12 people; and Mapping Main Street, a collaborative project documenting main streets across the US. Discussion will include artists from these projects, participants in the UnionDocs Collaborative Program, members of Meerkat Media Arts Collective, and the founders of the Brooklyn Filmmakers Collective. The goal is to provide a framework of practical approaches and provoke creativity in the way we approach documentary, while also opening a critical discussion about the goals of collaboration and its positive and negative attributes.
Panelists will include:
Jay Arthur Sterrenberg
Landon Von Soest
