Scripting reality: the tools of fiction in documentary

Round table on the tools of fiction in documentary filmmaking

8 May 2024 17:00 — 18:15
CCCB - Auditori

In recent years, the flirtation between documentary and fiction has developed into a stable relationship. Resources such as the script and the mise-en-scène fluidly transition both genres. In this round table, organized by DocsBarcelona and GAC (Associated Screenwriters of Catalunya), we will discuss to what extent the script allows us to delve into complex realities that are difficult to represent from the documentary narrative.

With the participation of Rosine Mbakam, director and screenwriter of Mambar Pierrette, and Sissy Cui, producer of Pelikan Blue, two films selected in the DocsBarcelona 2024 program.
