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

Small doll, big idea
26 October 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It's a hard thing to follow your passion and do what you love, especially when it is seldom financially rewarded. "The Dolls of Lisbon", inspired by the Zapatista Doll figures of Mexico, is an intimate look at the struggling artist in New York City and around the world put together by The Antagonist Movement of NYC. This massive worldwide art project about a small doll with a big idea behind it brings so many lone souls together, and gives you a look at a world that few experience. It is also interesting to find out what so many different minds envision when they look at these blank canvas figures, and how different the end products vary. The great score, 8mm film and stop motion sequences make this a truly unique film about a passionate group of people.
