Documemory: Re-enactment

Documemory: Re-enactment

A re-enactment is the action of performing a new version of an old event. It is a method often used in documentary filmmaking that visually provides more details and a better engagement to the audience. Yet, with the acting and the construction involved, it can threaten the documentary convention and blur the line between documentary and fiction. This year, seven films are included in the section of Documemory. The directors of these films consciously employed the method of 're-enactment', turning the past into the present and constructing a temporal moment in which past and present coexist. These films try to depict the complexity of reality when memory comes across re-enactments, rather than simply present what reality is.
