Save Event: Reality Runs Away #1 – The Limits of Documentary

I've seen this

People who have saved this event:


The first of three screenings of short films and moving image artworks exploring the limits of documentary and the tensions between fiction and reality in cinema


Night One:

Rowan Ings - Never Actually Lost (2019)
Will Pham - An Viet (Well Setlled) (2018)
Bella Riza - Salt House (2017)
Wilma Stone - A Good Stain (2016) & The Good Kind (2018)

The films selected have coalesced around themes of family and memory, while engaging with conventions of documentary cinema – primarily the interview and archival footage.


Perch Arts presents three evenings of screenings of work by emerging artists that can be seen to interrogate notions of documentary, employed here in an expanded sense. The diverse array of works, including experimental montage, performance documentation and poetic essay works, placed in dialogue with each other, stage a debate about the relation of the cinematic medium to notions of truth and fiction, and stand alone as distinct works in and of themselves.
