Each party to an encounter has a profound impact upon the other and both will be changed as a result of the meeting.” J.L. Moreno
 
Organised by Union Docs with programmer Cíntia Gil, this programme explores the psychology of the encounter, the performance of situational power, and how the production of narrative can be the ground where those tensions operate.

If Greaves’ IN THE COMPANY OF MEN produces an arena where hierarchy and racism in the corporate workplace are challenged through a transformative encounter involving role play and the dramatic articulation of the unspoken, James N Kienitz Wilkins’ SPECIAL FEATURES and TESTER examine voice as the mechanism for the delivery of uncertain testimony – a dream, a found VHS tape – destabiliing the speech act, disrupting the production of authority, and questioning the reliability of personal representation through a midpoint between the material conditions of the image and the emergence of meaning.
 
Screening followed by a conversation with James N Kienitz Wilkins.
