About the 2000 edition

In the last few years, documentary film has had a clear production boom, and has earned something which it seldom or never had in precious historical periods: a market of its own, brought about by television demand. That marke r
epresents a huge challenge, but also, first and foremost, a profound mutation concerning this area of production and distribution’s context. On the other hand, it produces new production and language patterns. Along with this market, the rules have changed, new tensions appeared. But… in view of that mutation in context, what films are actually being made?

In Serpa we wish to discuss films and their language. We wish to start from the concrete analysis of works to understand which bigger challenges for cinema and the image they present nowadays. We wish to understand which works trouble or put into question the new patterns of reading and consuming images (and) of our world. Or which works trouble us and put us into question in view of those new patterns… We do not wish to discuss documentary “in itself” but the cinema which is being made within it.
