Documentary Film making as collaboration and experimentation. The Highrise.

Watch the trailer for this new collaborative documentary film program from the NFB. Then check out http://highrise.nfb.ca/.  Toronto is one of the ten cities in the world where this film will be made.  The exciting thing about this project is that, unlike most other documentaries, Highrise isn’t about anything in particular.  Rather the stories emerge as the project evolves, depending on the participants.  And the end result need not necessarily be a film either, or even documentary in nature.  Kat Cizek’s previous projects that resulted from her residency at St. Michael’s hospital have spun off websites, videos, facilitated dialogue between pregnant homeless teens and their nurses etc etc.

If you have a story to tell about life in a highrise, or a project to explore our increasingly vertical urban life, then check it out.

.  The space may be designed to contain any combination of a small washroom,
laundry facilities, a home theatre system, a small home office area, and a convertible
area to accommodate overnight guests.
