Storytellers' Institute Point of Departure
Time: 5:00 PM to 10:00 PM
Palamountain Hall Davis Auditorium: Fact or Fiction?: Adapting Reality for Stage and Screen What is the relationship between truth, or fact, and story? Many documentary storytellers push the boundaries of truth, whether by sins of omission (framing, selection) or commission (reenactment, ordering). Conversely, many works of fiction are “based on a true story” and strive for emotional truth when choosing between art and narrow factuality. In this Point of Departure, filmmaker and photographer Chip Duncan, producer of stage and screen Dan Markley, and co-founder and president of the Nantucket Film Festival Jonathan Burkhart talk truth and fiction in storytelling. Schedule of events: 5 pm: Keynote: A conversation between Chip Duncan, Dan Markley and Jonathan Burkhart 6 pm: Reception 7 pm: Screening: Chip Duncan's new film A Quest for Meaning: Myth, Imagination & Faith in the Lives & Literatures of C.S. Lewis & J.R.R. Tolkein, followed by a moderated Q&A. This event is free and open to the public. For more information visit: MDOCS' Storytellers' Institute - Point of Departure.
