Director Biography - Michael B MacDonald

An award-winning filmmaker, cine-ethnomusicologist and associate professor of music at MacEwan University, Michael B. MacDonald uses digital cinema to study music (cine-ethnomusicology) and people by focusing on methodological issues in screen production research and research-creation.

Michael uses CineWorlding (evolved from ethnofiction) to tell stories about worlds that are difficult to tell in print. Through screenplays and improvisational films, co-realized with musicians, actors, and non-actors, Michael helps to inform audiences about the lives and worlds that writing alone cannot reveal.

He seeks to understand environments, biospheres, technospheres, mediaspheres, and their complex web of interrelations through world-building cinema. He believes that digital cinema has the power to help people learn more about each other and the world.

Director Statement

"And,And,And..." is a collectively improvised film about polyamory and music set in Porto, Portugal in the summer of 2019. It explores the production of subjectivity, the individual becoming of a person as they discover that they love a form of music and the people who are involved in it. It is also about the possibilities of loving more than one genre of music, one music scene, and one person. Polyamory is both a metaphorical critique of monogamous forms of research that separate out one musical or social activity from its complex flowing interactions with other, as well as seen as a Deleuzian exploration of becoming-punk, becoming-dance, becoming-ocean, becoming-polyamaorous.
