With 22 blocks of nonfiction programming and installation-based documentary by more than 80 artists from around the world, the second annual Mimesis Documentary Festival comes to the Dairy Arts Center and the B2 Center for Media Arts from August 4-10.
We're excited to announce the program for the 2021 Mimesis Documentary Festival, welcoming Featured Artist Pedro Costa!
The festival kicks off with an opening night celebration with Brooklyn-based artist and poet Lynne Sachs screening her recent work, Film About a Father Who (2020), a meditation on masculinity and fatherhood assembled from three decades of film and images of her own father. Lynne returns on August 5 for an artist-focused workshop exploring her signature medium, the "film-poem," with participants looking to everyday images and their lives to construct individual film-poems. In addition to screenings and workshops, 2021 Featured Artist Pedro Costa joins us on August 7 for an editing masterclass based on a new restoration of Where Does Your Hidden Smile Lie?, the landmark 2001 film that Costa has described as both his first comedy and his first love story.
