TiMeDoc Symposium 2014: Tiempo y Memoria en la No-ficción Audiovisual Contemporánea.

Facultad de Comunicación de la Universidad de Navarra, 23-24 de junio de 2014.

This contribution seeks to explore the creative, imaginative strategies that contemporary documentary brings into play when addressing a subjective, non-visible, non-quantifiable process such as personal memory. Most specifically, it aims at discussing the implications of the crisis of the analogical trace, derived from the consolidation of the digital image, on contemporary documentary, a media form traditionally conceiving archive as an ideal means for the articulation of the politics of the past.
Bringing into play an interdisciplinary approach to media representations which includes cognitive sciences, philosophy, and film analysis, and taking The missing picture (Rithy Panh, 2013) as a case study, I will stress that the imaginative and creative dimension of memory requires means of representation transcending the recording of the real, and introducing creative, poetic strategies able to give account of the subjective dimension of reality.
To conclude, I will propose a discussion about the potential and the limits of creativity and imagination to articulate alternatives to the official, hegemonic discourses controlling the means of image production, frequently imposing a monological, unidirectional meaning of images, and thus reducing their ambivalent nature to a one single interpretative dimension.
