Go ahead and measure your truth in pixels.

Ask yourself, in this age of handycams, Photoshop, and reality TV, what counts as a document? Why do we bother documenting? This panel discussion redefines and examines documentary practices, our need to tell the whole truth and nothing but the truth, and how creatively we are doing it. Join experimental artists working in film, video installation and theatre for a discussion on the benefits of lying creatively. All we want are the facts, just the facts, ma’am.
