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.

California Company Town

D: Lee Anne Schmitt, USA 2008, 76 min.

Schmitt invites us to join her in an alternate reading of the past. The film affords a critical view of linear progress and the loss of the American Dream.
