BRISTOL, UK.-Increased experimentation by film-makers such as Michael Moore and Morgan Spurlock means that the walls between art and documentary are collapsing, generating innovative ideas and attracting an entirely new audience. Intellect’s new release, Truth or Dare: Art and Documentary, is the innovative product of a Whitechapel Gallery conference, bringing together renowned artists, film-makers, writers and curators. The ethics of this new wave of documentary are probed when authenticity of documentary clashes with the entertainment and imagination of art.
Truth or Dare explores the blurred boundaries between documentary film and contemporary art, extending discussion to new technological developments that allow for crossover and opportunities for collaboration. This is a unique and timely collection of reflection and analysis by documentary makers and artists about where they position their art forms in relation to each other and the shape of film-making to come.
