Roundtable Workshop: Fabulations in the Cinema of the Real
Institute of Contemporary Arts
January 2022

Aleph, dir. Iva Radivojević, USA / Croatia / Qatar 2021, 91 min., English 

In the cinema of the real, fabulation and reimagination allow us to reconfigure ways of being, listening and sharing. Through a collaborative and interactive mode of spectatorship, the filmmaker, their subject(s) and their audience are all collectively involved in co-creating an aesthetic of reality.

In this workshop, filmmakers Guido Hendrikx (A Man and a Camera) and Iva Radivojević (Aleph) will be in conversation with film critic and script consultant Wim Vanacker. Together, they’ll discuss some of these practices and consider how cinematic fabulation can expand the language of the moving image, enabling us to imagine new social collectivities on screen.

Bringing together directors who all, in their individual ways, reflect on human nature through striking and playful formats that skillfully blend reality and artifice – together with the support of previous works and experiences from each of the participants – the workshop explores how filmmakers today may strive to resist established cinematic norms and practices.
