Idea of an island
A program of utopian and dystopian visions of the world we live in: insulated places where the entire world is condensed, discovered territories where, as in a stratified rock, different ages and origins, solitary gestures and collective gestus, tensions between the visible and the invisible, word and image, interior and exterior, real and imaginary, memory and transformation are overlapping.
By materializing, in the middle of the ocean, the utopias of community and retreat that are at the origin of Doc's Kingdom, the "Idea of an island" is thus literal and metonymic, as all cinema and any shot of a film.
In the manifold program, the presence of land and sea, the atopic reality of globalization, social chimeras and individual dreams, isolation and alienation, will form a heterogeneous panorama of worldviews.
For the first time in the history of the seminar, the programme was not released beforehand: everyday, the group entered the theatre wihtout knowing what films composed the screening. Departing without a map,
combining availability and risk, each participant in Doc's Kingdom cooperated in an experience that could not be foreseen, but that was nonetheless individually imagined and projected.
Idea of an island
Visions on 2013
The twenty-one fellows of the 2013 Doc's Kingdom edition were invited to participate in different tasks during the seminar (sound and image recording of the debates, photographic documentation, production assistance, social media) or after the seminar (transcribing one debate, writing a text or making a short film about this Doc's Kingdom). These are the ten texts and videos resulting from that invitation: visions on 2013.
