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

Temporary Autonomous Zone
31 January 2012 | by (Portugal) – See all my reviews

As the curator for the Project "Dolls of Lisbon" I must state that Ethan Minsker's film was a long awaited venue.

The reasons had mainly to do with the necessary visual archive that is fundamental for projects of this nature, the possibility of expanding the project to other "publics" and, most important, as a tool to provide further readings of it.

"The Dolls of Lisbon" was an experience lab. A space made of meetings and intersections. A geography created only by the impulse to CREATE and to SHARE. From the roots of this idea in NY, to the arrival in Portugal, and going by the other paths that lead to Ecuador and Germany, I see on this film the emotional mapping of this Antagonist project.

Just after watching the preview I congratulated Ethan Minsker mainly for two reasons: a)For accomplishing his "vision" (and it was a very hard road to get here) b)For the ending of the film where the cadence of the human nature reveals itself

Yes, "The dolls of Lisbon" was a temporary space of autonomy. Autonomous for its experimental side. Temporary for the sense of afterward that the film brilliantly provides.

Ethan's work shows us the importance of discovering these new geographies and fight for renewed collective utopias.

And I thank him for that.
