Made Up defies the distinction between documentary and fiction by distorting what would otherwise be a standard interview to reveal truth in subjectivity.

Made Up
Owen Eric Wood (Canada)
video, 2008, 4 min. 20 sec.

In an interview that blurs the distinction between documentary and fiction, a man talks candidly about masculinity in relation to what he finds attractive. What appears to be an objective interview is revealed to be social commentary. Through the manipulation of image and sound, a contradiction is created between what is seen and what is heard.
