Last November, CMS’s Open Documentary Lab unveiled “Moments of Innovation – When Documentary and Technology Converge”, an exhibit and website at the International Documentary Film Festival, Amsterdam (IDFA) that demonstrated just how dramatically key technological developments affected how documentary makers think about, and practice, their craft.
“Things are changing radically in the university…it’s a moment of great terror.”
Emerging digital technologies are opening powerful new ways to create and even to reconceptualize the documentary film.
“It has been a long time since I left CMS, and I’ve been busy and active every moment of the journey since I left. You need to do that to succeed in any career. At the same time, though, this is just as true: every day, at every step, I have drawn upon and, in the process, relived my days at CMS.”
“The pas de deux between these top-down and bottom-up developments has put media ever more at the center of contemporary cultural practice.”
The debates sparked in our reorganization serve as powerful reminders that the university has been blissfully isolated from seismic changes.
