Visible Evidence
2021

December 14–18
Frankfurt am Main

How does documentary respond to what has been widely diagnosed as the current crisis of democracy? Populist nationalism, political tribalism, environmental damage, migration crisis and global pandemic have bearings on our public sphere. In its Frankfurt Edition, Visible Evidence, the international conference on documentary film and media, seeks to explore documentary’s potential as a space for representation and democratic deliberation. The conference brings together scholars, artists, archivists and activists for five days of discussions, screenings, workshops and talks.
