THE B SIDE (LA CARA B)

Experimental documentary-2013
By Manuel Martín Cuenca

Filming the negative (the reverse) view of the fiction.

Parallel to the shooting of the film we will run an experiment.  A version of the film that is another film.  In this you will hear off camera the soundtrack of the fiction, but the images will be a documentary about the limits of this fiction: the act of filming. In each shot that we film with the actors and the conventional set, there will be another camera (a small digital one) that will shoot a detail of what is happening around the act of filming. In this way, each shot will have its parallel, documenting the physical frontier of the filming.  The operation will be repeated take by take.

The choice of the aspects around the shooting will be connected to what is happening in the main film, and will change sequence by sequence with the fictional story. If the choice is, for example, a group of people watching the shooting, the different shots of the B side will be about these people, until the sequence changes in the structure of the fictional film, and then a new aspect of the shooting will appear.

In the final edit of the B side, we will use the same structure as the main film; that is to say, the same number and length of shots, and exactly the same takes that were chosen for the fiction version. In this way we can see what happened exactly in real life around the filming.

It would be as if the film is turned around, but you continue to hear the echo, the soundtrack of the main film.  Travelling to the parallel documentary world beyond the limits of fiction.

Filming B side of Cannibal will be a narrative experiment.
