Democrascope is a cine lab inviting you to help define the moment.We are
looking for short videos (3 minutes or less) on the theme of active
 democracy in genres ranging from documentary to experimental, narrative,
performance-based, sci-fi, etc. The videos will be programmed into
Democrascope an installation drawing connections between the early history
of cinema as public spectacle (such as Montreal’s Ouimetoscope inviting
people to “Venez en foule” – come en masse) and contemporary crowd-sourced
media culture.

A typical film program at the turn of the 20th century included politics,
news items, human interest stories, anecdotal observations of every day
life, of nature, of eccentric events. The films had titles like Trouble in
a Basement, The Czar, The  Last Collar Button, Niagara Falls, From
Socialism to Nihilism.

The exhibition will take place at Joyce Yahouda Gallery Montreal October
11-November 5.

Please send a link to your online videos to perrybard at gmail.com and
