But the coronavirus agonies are only part of the repertoire of urgent matters reflected by the curatorship, organized under the baton of Amir Labaki to take place online, with the same efficiency experienced in 2020. “We all miss the face-to-face festival, but an important lesson from digital is to preserve this hybrid character of maintaining what happens in rooms also in the online environment “, he said, at a news conference via Zoom. “As it is very agile, the documentary responded formally to what is happening around us. What we tried to do was to bring to the selection those who treated the pandemic, formally, with freshness, in their record.”

From Brazil, there is the long-awaited Dawn, which marks the return of Anna Muylaert (filmmaker of What Time Does She Come Back?) to the scene of the big festivals, after a hiatus of five years. She returns in partnership with Lo Politi (from Jonas) recalling Dilma Rousseff’s daily life on the fringes of impeachment. Still unpublished by Eryk Rocha, Vincent Carelli, Ricardo Calil and Joel Pizzini in the selection of national features and shorts, revealing the Brazilian power in this era of closed exhibition halls.

“The aesthetic influence of streaming in the way of framing and in the narrative models of the documentary is still none. What already existed, even in the pre-pandemic, was a predilection for serial narratives and, especially, based on two subgenres: reports on crimes and the look at celebrities, from the royal family to Anitta. What I hope, with a concrete impact, is that the platforms will become real partners in the production of documentaries “, evaluates Labaki. “Today, we are going through a process of buying independent documentaries, in which the examples of authorial films are not uncommon, through the streamings. But there is already a less passive process. And, perhaps there, with filmmakers already producing their ideas by having a streaming as the main screen, without going through the circuit, the influence on the aesthetics of the films can be noticed. “
