Door Into The Dark - An Immersive Interactive & Vivid Documentary

Feeling their way along a taut length of rope, participants are taken alone into a three-dimensional aural world of real people who have been profoundly lost and, through experiencing the unknown, have been changed in unexpected ways.

The journey is contained within a carefully designed physical space, the architecture of which relies on atmosphere, texture, smell and scale. You begin on the rope… but then it splits, the room spins and the space opens out in front of you.

Consisting of short films, an interactive data visualization, and a participatory dictionary, Unspeak critically and satirically reveals the unspoken messages and obscured meanings behind familiar media terms such as War on Terror, Weapons of Mass Destruction, Climate Change, File Sharing, Austerity Measures, Erectile Dysfunction, or the Dutch word Kopvoddentax.

17.000 Islands, an interactive documentary

17000 Islands is an interactive documentary experiment in image making. Set in the Indonesian museum park called Taman Mini Indonesia Indah or Beautiful Indonesia Miniature Park – a manicured synopsis of the country’s 17,000 islands – the project explores models of reality by looking at how an image of a nation is created and how documentary filmmaking takes part in this process.

The Aatsinki Season is the online companion to Aatsinki: The Story Of Arctic Cowboys. While the film focuses on the Aatsinki family and their deep bond with their reindeer and the land, The Aatsinki Season is an interactive debate that draws attention to the social, environmental, political and moral issues confronting them.

Expanding on the themes of the film, the online experience challenges each participant to reconsider his or her assumptions about technology, food production, and, most critically, man’s place in nature. Episodes of The Aatsinki Season will be released in seasonal installments over the course of a year, coordinated to coincide with the real-time events of the herding schedule.

Moments of Innovation, when documentary and tech converge

Presented by: MIT Open Documentary Lab // IDFA DocLab

"We take an expansive view of documentary, and are above all interested in the pas de deux between representation and technology, and the resulting capacity to see the world with new eyes.

We are interested in history, in connecting the dots between our latest endeavors and those conceptual pioneers and technological prototypes that came before them. We consider innovation both in the creative application of new technologies and in the creative impulse that lead documentarians to invent new technologies.

We are interested in continuities and disruptions, in tracking down origins and inspirations. Although our theme is evolutionary, we do not assume that recent instances are better than earlier ones – they are different, and our goal is to recall those earlier instances, to learn from and to celebrate them.

For these reasons, MIT’s Open Documentary Lab and IDFA’s DocLab have joined together to put the long story of documentary innovation into perspective, and to speculate about its future”.
