Authorship. Authority. Authenticity. Recent Documentaries from Elsewhere

"Santiago" with Eduardo Thomas and João Moreira Salles

João Moreira Salles | Santiago (BR 2007)

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.

Santiago

D: João Moreira Salles, BR 2007, 80 min.

In his portrait of his family’s butler Santiago, Salles measures to what extent a filmmaker is willing to wield directorial needs, and to what extent a subject will yield to these demands.
