Visible Evidence 18


I attended the 18th annual Visible Evidence Conference at the Tisch School of the Arts, New York University, August 11-14, 2011. VE18 brought together over one hundred students and scholars of documentary film from all over the world to watch films and hear papers about every aspect of non-fiction documentary from German television and animation to Queer politics and travelogues.

Despite the usual technological glitches and approximations of being on schedule, most of the presentations I visited were well-attended.  My favorite events included Concordia University’s Randolph Jordan’s paper on sound manipulation of the World Trade Center attacks  and a screening of ‘A Boatload of Wild Irishmen’, MacDara O’Curraidhim and Brian Winston’s documentary about the filmmaker Robert Flaherty.
