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

Fast paced documentary that tracks an international group of artists as they prepare for a group show in Lisbon, Portugal
22 October 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This fast paced documentary covers a lot of territory in a short time. The film includes great animation, stop-camera action and an original soundtrack. About 100 handmade dolls, with a blank canvas covering, were distributed to artists in New York, Portugal, Germany, France, Italy and Equator. Each artist made their doll into a unique piece of art, reflective of their individual artistic style and statement. The film interviews some of the artists in their studios, capturing their struggles and achievements. The artists then came together in Lisbon, Portugal to exhibit their art dolls in an international group show. The film was produced under the auspices of the Antagonist Movement, Inc., a collective of artists, filmmakers and writers based in New York City. It demonstrates what can be achieved by creative people committed to their art and their community of fellow artists. Inspirational and entertaining, this film should be watched by anyone who is an artist, wants to be an artist or simply loves art and good films. People who enjoyed Exit Through the Gift Shop or Style Wars will love this film.
