NOVA: A Free Documentary about Contemporary Art

NOVA is a DIY documentary about art and the artists behind it, based on Brazil’s Nova Contemporary Culture, which brought together 140 leading international artists come together for a monthlong festival of live performances, video screenings, audiovisual installations, roundtables, experimental gastronomy and various other creative showcases. The film, directed by Isaac Niemand and co-produced by Rojo and Bossa Nova Films, features dozens of bleeding-edge artists, including Brain Pickings favorites Zeitguised and Mark Jenkins, and spans an incredible breadth of creative expression.

Filmed in August 2010 at São Paulo’s MIS-Museum of Image and Sound, the documentary is a living hallmark of the incredibly diverse ecosystem of contemporary art, exploring some of the key pillars of creativity, from collaboration to inspiration to cerebral stimulation.

The best part? The entire 75-minute documentary is available for free online. Enjoy — we certainly did.
