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

a documentary about making a art project, not just the art
This is a great documentary that shows how a independent group can create their own show and take it on the road. The Antagonist Movemente did it by simply congregating different people with the urge to create, giving them a challenge. And trough their challenge it became clear that it's not the frontiers that really differentiate people, specially artists, but their unique personality, that leads them to work. Theirs is the first push that can lead to many different results, and the struggle to create a record of what and how it happened. For the all the steps to the final exhibition are accomplishments in themselves, and it's only a pity that there's no possibility of seeing more of each one of them.
