Resumo

Thinking about the activism nowadays it is impossible to exclude the power of the visual, of film, cinema, of video, of multimedia platforms and social media extensions that offer a possibility of conveying a message probably stronger than any other tool at our disposal. An emerging form nowadays is the web-documentary or interactive documentary, among the other names it got, which changes the way we see the cinematic narrative and offers another perspective on the engaged audiences. Is there a viable connection between the web-documentary production and social change? Is there a functional form in which the two correspond - an activist project which attained its goal through or with the help of an online documentary film? Can this hybrid art form be used as a tool for social change and how?
In this paper I will address these questions, as well as combine different interpretations and suggestions using as a starting point the crossing of documentary cinema and activism practices.
