Call For Papers

The proposed panel explores the development of a documentary film and video movement from the margins of the Spanish film industry during the early years of the twenty-first century.

A wave of documentarists connected to academic master’s programs in documentary engage a creative, and inventive approach to represent the real by breaking the boundaries of traditional documentary filmmaking. This paradigm reconstructs the historical and social world from a subjective perspective beyond the expository mode. Thus, the new documentary makers engage the subject incorporating a variety of approaches such as reflexivity and performativity, hybridization, aesthetic experimentation, innovative use of appropriated images, and a complex and fluid representation of identities, spaces, and bodies.

The panel broadly intends to identify and describe some of the trends that have emerged in non-fiction cinema and to place them within a theoretical framework that examines questions of Spanish cultural identity, new subjectivities, new documentary studies, transnational documentary filmmaking, memory studies, cinematic space, affect theory, among others.
