Abstract

Work that explores opportunities for participation, collaboration and the potential democratization of documentary production. Utilizing user-generated video captured on mobile phones and available devices, the project is participatory, the audience contributing documentary videos around the theme of 24-hours in a city; for example 24hours.in Tampere, Finland. With reference to Dziga Vertov’s seminal 1929 documentary film ‘Man with a Movie Camera’, the aim is for the videos to document the cities, the people that live there and their daily lives.

Bogdanka Poznanović award - for the media installation.

Also, jury considered this work as a certain hommage to Dziga Vertov and his "Man with a movie camera" in the 21st century.
