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

The Dolls Are Coming!
13 January 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The idea is simple enough, show the world the true life of the artist. There are a million ways that one could have gone about making a film like this. Ethan Minsker however chose a somewhat unusual tool to bring this film and message to life, a lanky canvas doll.

Bend and cut some wire, bandage bloodied cuts, wrap in fluffing, cut up canvas and sew on new skin. These were the ingredients to create the star and instrument of this film, The Doll. By sending these ingenious works of art around the world to different artists The Antagonists have created a truly unique show. Each piece as drastically different as it's creator, but all began as the same plain canvas figure.

This is a must see journey for artists of all types.
