Character driven Documentary

24 May 2023 16:00 — 17:30
CCCB - Auditori

How do you create a narrative when the building blocks of the story are beyond your control? How do you identify a potential story that has not happened yet? How do you present a film that doesn’t exist? What is character driven? How does a documentary script look? What is subtext? What does Complementarity and Quantum Mechanics have to do with directing documentaries? What’s the difference between events and stories?
