Ecstatic Truth III – Making Sense: Between Fantasy and Fact is the third in a series of symposia exploring the edges and areas of overlap between animation and documentary. We are interested in exploring the widest possible conceptualisation of documentary in conjunction with the widest possible interpretation of animation. This year, the organising team of Birgitta Hosea and Tereza Stehlikova has been joined by Pedro Serrazina and, therefore, the event will take place in Lisbon at the Universidade Lusófona.
The keynote speakers come from a range of approaches to documentary. Susana Sousa Dias is a documentary filmmaker, José Miguel Ribeiro is an animation director and Joan Fontcuberta a photographer: each engages with a notion of the ‘truth’ in differing ways within their practice. The other speakers have been selected through peer review to give presentations on topics ranging from the depiction of war and trauma, working with participants to create work that captures their own experiences and experimentation with a range of techniques from magic lanterns through to VR and drones.
