Curious about the brave new world of interactive documentaries? Experimental filmmaker Morgan Rhys Tams’ “elevated cinema” goes where few have gone before.
From a community-based animation with 120 collaborators, to an animated site-specific installation of strategically placed QR codes on aluminum plates, Morgan’s oeuvre stretches the limits of what a documentary can be.
Morgan has created everything from a music video-style rock & roll “western” opera to site specific and interactive installations and community-based interventions—often in some of the world’s most challenging locations.
He has received grants from the Canada Council, BC Arts Council and National Film Board and taught in partnership with The National Film Board, the City of Victoria, the Vancouver Olympic Organizing Committee, and prestigious Hot Docs Film Festival.
