The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences presents Neither/Nor, True/False's annual exploration of "chimeric" cinema, i.e. filmmaking that contains elements of fiction and nonfiction.
In each edition, a visiting critic curates a slate of films which will be screened at Ragtag Cinema the week of the festival. All Neither/Nor screenings are free. If you have questions about the series, you can read about the ticketing details here, or feel free to email Chris Boeckmann at firstname.lastname@example.org.
For the fourth edition of the 2016 edition of our Neither/Nor sidebar, we are collaborating with film critic Nick Pinkerton on a series exploring Mondo (or so-called “shockumentary”) cinema and its offshoots. Read more about the series here, and stay tuned for the film schedule announcement next!
