Veracity

New Documentary Cinema

Veracity is an ongoing exploration of documentary cinema practice, curated to showcase the creative potential of non-fiction filmmaking.

Actual, Factual, True, Verité, Un-Fiction: Call it what, or how, you will, the Documentary in the 21st century has come to articulate the cumulative woes - and possible redemptions - of our era, with its unique capacity to mine the personal and universal with bracing acumen and also moving lyricism. Veracity is dedicated to the art of current documentary practices from around the world, offering an intensive survey of innovative voices and a platform for reckoning with modern enigmas among multivalent subjects. These films seek to engage audiences with both the matters-at-hand of perpetual plight and the coextensive aesthetic strategies that bring them to near-palpable life. 

The common ethos of the series: films that are formally daring and ripe for civic engagement, rewarding sustained forms of attention.
