Main speaker: Fons Schiedon
Director, designer, art director, illustrator. Schiedon currently lives in Berlin.
Working with ideas of narration and representation, Schiedon’s personal work explores the principle of “make believe”. Much of his work involves manipulation through digital post-production.
Fons Schiedon is also known for his commissioned work in illustration, graphic-, interior and broadcasting design and his work as an animation director. His short films and illustrations have featured on MTV Asia, Nickleodeon and Pictoplasma festival.
More recently (2012) he oversaw the animation for “Poor Us”, a half-animated documentary (commissioned by BBC, ARTE, ZDF amongst others) which was broadcast in over 50 countries.
Support programme: Werner de Gruijter
Cinetoko presents a small excerpt from The Symposium Nights. In the Symposion Nights we invite participants to share their ideas about reality and at the same time, practise critical thinking. Each Symposion discusses a specific theme with the help of selected fragments from documentaries.
This time the theme is the role of hierarchy in the creation of poverty. Are you prepared to view reality from a different angle?
Hosted by Puck Verkade
