The State of the Art, Part II: Documentary Aesthetics – NFB/blog

If the subjects of your doc are really—shall we say—”out there”, then allowing that to influence the filmmaking process may very well result in some pretty crazy-looking footage! An incredible example of exactly this kind of surreal, unhinged documentary aesthetic is the NFB’s Oscar®-nominated Volcano: An Inquiry into the Life and Death of Malcolm Lowry. It may start out simply enough as a biopic, but this riveting feature doc takes its cue from Lowry’s eccentric prose, and it climbs to zany heights before you know it.
