Storyline

Channeling the Mexican Zapatista movement, The Dolls of Lisbon is New York City's Antagonist Art Movement's latest calling. Featuring artists from The United States, Ecuador, Portugal, and fellow Antagonist Artists in Europe. This documentary focuses on the labors of the artist, begging the question: If you knew being an artist would be this much of a struggle, would you still have taken this path? In addition, the film also includes a unique soundtrack of underground musicians, and an innovative use of Super 8mm film and stop motion animation. Written by Ethan H. Minsker

An intimate look at the artistic lifestyle
14 January 2012 | by (New York, New York) – See all my reviews

This movie follows the mounting of an international art project spearheaded by the art group, The Antagonist Movement. It features interviews with artists of multiple national backgrounds who all have at least one thing in common - the overwhelming drive to make art, even at the cost of a more traditional and predictable life.

The project itself is fascinating - The Antagonist Movement sent blank canvas dolls to artists all over the world with the instructions to change them however they wanted to. The results are wildly different, and show a wide variety of artistic visions. It's a must see for all artists and art lovers, and it also features an awesome soundtrack.
