IDFA Starts 16th - 27th Nov 2011

A video with my presentation last year at The Prologue / Paradocs
International Documentary Festival Amsterdam

Presentations by filmmakers featured in the section of IDFA's program dedicated to experimental and artistic documentaries. Video artist Duro Toomato makes live recordings of two new editions of his Yes or No project. Finnish directors Hannes Vartiainen and Pekka Veikkolainen display carcasses of the insects they used in The Death of an Insect. Flemish theater collective Berlin talk about their cinematic theatrical work Tagfish. Dutch Panamanian video artist Antonio Jose Guzman (b. 1971) reports on the progress of his multimedia The Day We Surrender to the Air, which also features graffiti art, dance and music. And the Belgian Vincent Meessen - at Paradocs last year with Vita Nova, a documentary based on a 1955 edition of Paris Match - presents his own, contemporary version of this weekly news magazine.
