Save Event: Reality Runs Away #2 – The Limits of Documentary1

I've seen this

People who have saved this event:


The second 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 Two:

Cyrus Hung - Thoughts on Pigeons (2019)
Tabitha Steinberg - I'm wondering if you have any interest in art? (2019)
Jing Xie - Lady, Escalator and Hand (2019)

Films engaging in distinct ways with cinema's relation with public space and the social, as well as art's place in a society.


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.
