Residency

Stephen Foster, 2006

Foster will work on The Prince George Métis Documentary Project: An Exploration in Experimental and Interactive Documentary, undertaken collaboratively with Métis Elders. “Our ultimate goal is a body of work that will embrace traditional documentary film, and at the same time provide avenues to disrupt that tradition through the use of new interactive media such as DVD and web-based content deliver…. We seek to complicate the representations… using participatory techniques to share the power and produce coherent narratives with our community collaborators.” (S.F.)
