The Narrator: Archetype and Mythopoiesis
The Village Doc Festival presents stories of reality through the language of the creation documentary: author’s stories that give a unique synthesis of experiences, events, resources, perspectives, revisited and reinterpreted from the director’s point of view. Each with his technical approach, his stylistic sensibility, his vision of the theme, his personal relationship with the facts.
Every documentary tale of reality immediately becomes mythopoeic, placing the director in the role of the primal narrator who has always guided individuals and communities to orient themselves in the world.
So, reality becomes alive, and is re-experienced by each viewer to stimulate new narratives, perhaps capable of changing reality itself.
