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.
