Editorial Reviews

The Dolls of Lisbon is New York City's Antagonist Art Movement's latest exploit inspired by the Zapatista Dolls of Mexico, a souvenir that travelled the world symbolizing a little known rebellion. The Antagonists take aim at the legacy of Andy Warhol's over commercialization and commodification of art. Like the Zapatista Movement our Dolls are a symbol of resistance, here to wage war against mass production and to give a voice to those who walk a unique and sometimes arduous path.

This film re-examines the notion of the struggling artist, and initiates a cultural exchange among artists from The United States, Ecuador, Portugal, and fellow Antagonist Artists across Europe.

Driven by a vital underground soundtrack, Super 8mm film and stop motion animation, The Dolls of Lisbon explores art and all its existential struggles on and off the canvas.

Extras:
The Soft Hustle (64 min) 1999-2000

It's a hard thing to follow your passion and do what you love, especially when it is seldom financially rewarded. "The Dolls of Lisbon", inspired by the Zapatista Doll figures of Mexico, is an intimate look at the struggling artist in New York City and around the world put together by The Antagonist Movement of NYC. This massive worldwide art project about a small doll with a big idea behind it brings so many lone souls together, and gives you a look at a world that few experience. It is also interesting to find out what so many different minds envision when they look at these blank canvas figures, and how different the end products vary. The great score, 8mm film and stop motion sequences make this a truly unique film about a passionate group of people.

I myself am not an artist but you don't have to be to appreciate this film for what it is: the story of a group of likable & diverse people who are struggling in pursuit of their dreams, and having a hell of a good time along the way. A lot of art docs just show the glamour & glitz of a full-scale exhibition, but here we get to see the not-so glam side of putting together an international art show- from the mouths & through the eyes of the artists who make it all come together. Really high quality filming & fun stylistic techniques!

I really enjoyed this film - It was really inspiring to see the crew go out and do some workshops and see a whole slew of new artists. This is my favorite Antagonist film yet!

If you've ever felt that your necktie at work seems a little tight....

Or that you are sick of having a name tag that is part of your outfit at work....

Or if those cubicle walls seem a little claustrophobic...

Or if you see the bike messenger at work, and think he's got the life...

See this movie, and imagine your're part of the Antagonist movement. In fact, given their presence online, you might be able to join!

What you'll see is a group of really hard working individuals very devoted to their craft, creating art and showcasing it around the world.

These aren't hipsters who make claim to be creative by twirling the ends of their handlebar moustaches. These are real hard working artists, that dispense with procrastination and "make art" without being burdened by over thinking or even finances.

If you ever thought... " I have an idea", but were too afraid to pursue it... see this film, and get inspired to go for it.

The Dolls of Lisbon is an amazing story of artists from around the world coming together. The collaboration is fascinating to watch and seeing the more personal stories of artists telling the viewer why they make art and what drives them makes me grin from ear to ear just knowing that the Antagonist Art Movement is out there. The documentary style is more punk rock than PBS. It jumps about visually, mixing super 8 footage, stop-motion animation, as well as straight on filming. It is raw and real and without pretense. WATCH THIS NOW!!

And check out this other great doc from the Antagonist Art Movement:

I was especially fond of different artists viewpoints from around the world.The film showcases the exchange of ideas, culture, and the cast is easy to identify with. These artists truly know how to enjoy the world around them, step back, and look beyond. I was inspired needless to say.
