MetamentalDOC

2009 - 2011 | Webdoc

MetamentalDOC is an interactive documentary that looks at documentary film and independent documentary film. It is a project that contains a great deal of content of various types. The project came about as the result of an audiovisual documentary produced by the same team, and grew to the point where it became a larger work than its predecessor. MetamentalDOC multimedia is also a documentary based on a web and interactive medium. In this platform, the content has been expanded and the audiovisual project has become part of the multimedia, with the inclusion of some parts and at the same time, the inclusion of audiovisual content.

The title of the audiovisual project - metamentalDOC - is based on a word game. This terminology and ideas in this project infinitely reference each other on a constant basis. Producing a documentary work on the documentary genre itself is “playing” with the concept, using its own tools. MetamentalDOC is “metadocumentary”, “meta-doc-MENTAL” and finally, meta-mental-DOC. Each part of the title is significant: “Meta”, because it is a metanarrative, “mental“ because it calls for the interpretation of the content and “DOC” because it is a documentary. MetamentalDOC multimedia is therefore the title of an interactive project based on the audiovisual documentary metamentalDOC. It has the same title, and is complemented by the multimedia specification. From the point of view of the core concept of this work, it is an interactive application halfway between the documentary genre - as can be seen in the interviews section and the documentary piece itself - and a work of cultural dissemination with a didactic and pedagogical objective - as can be seen in the historical background and virtual classroom sections.
