FILM 47.05 History of Documentary

Documentary film combines nonfiction with an aesthetic aspiratio. This course will explore achievement in the documentary, raising issues about the influence of documentary upon political persuasion,historical memory, the status of film as evidence and its utility as a means of investigation. We will look at film from a broad range of styles, viewpoint and eras. Documentary represents an alternative to the dominant entertainment cinema and as such, frequently addresses controversial issues directly. Students should be prepared to explore sensitive issues of race, class and gender raised by non-fiction film.
