The art of record offers a fascinating insight into the functions of documentary in film and television. Documentary's attempts to depict reality, and to comment on it, have provoked disagreement from the 1920s to the present day. Recent debates about knowledge and representation, and about the changing character of publiv culture, have increased its interests and relevance. John Corner presents a clear overview of the theoretical issues and critical debates around documentary, and discusses the development of the main styles and approaches, including dramadocs and fly-on-the-wall. He also looks at the dual identity of work in documentary - as both artefact and as reference.The book provides a valuable detailed analysis of powerful documentary films and programmes such as the classic 1930s films Coalface and Housing Problems (on aspects of contemporary work and environment), Cathy Come Home (whose presentation of homelessness had an enormous impact) and The Life and Times of Rosie the Riveter (about the treatment of women in US factories during World War Two)." -- BOOK BLURB Notes: Includes bibliographical references (p. -201) and index ISBN: 0719046866 (hardcover : alk. paper); 0719046874 (pbk. : alk. paper) LON: 12095813 More info

In addition to Charles Warren's broad introductory history of the genre, the book takes a close look at ethnographic films, cinema verite, memoir and autobiography, docudramas, essay films, and newsreels, from classics like Night and Fog and Nanook of the North to more recent important work like Film about a Woman Who..., Harlan County, U.S.A., Sans Soleil, and Forest of Bliss.
Representations of reality are increasingly contested, in courtrooms and Congress, as well as in art. Asking what the art of film can achieve, Helene Keyssar considers the history of nonfiction films by women; Jay Cantor discusses film investigations of the Holocaust; Patricia Hampl looks at how autobiographical films render experience into narrative; Robert Gardner questions the filmmaker's "impulse to preserve"; and poet Susan Howe explores structures of mourning in several filmmakers.

This book surveys the careers of the central creators of those stories for Australian television—the writers who learnt how to work in a new medium, adapting to its constraints and exploring its creative possibilities. Informed by interviews with many writers, it describes the establishment of Australian television drama production, observing the way writers grasped the creative and business opportunities that television presented. It examines the development of Australian versions of the major television genres—the sitcom, the police drama, the historical series, docudrama, and social drama— presenting a ‘canon’ of significant Australian television drama productions that deserve to be remembered. It offers an account of the emergence of work by Indigenous writers for television and it argues for the consideration of television drama alongside histories of Australian film and stage drama. -- publisher's web site ISBN: 9781925984880 More info

Edited by one of the leading British authorities in the field, The Documentary Film Book is an essential guide to current thinking on documentary film.
In a series of fascinating essays, key international experts discuss the theory of documentary, outline current understandings of its history (from pre-Flaherty to the post-Griersonian world of digital 'i-Docs'), survey documentary production (from Africa to Europe, and from the Americas to Asia), consider documentaries by marginalised minority communities, and assess its contribution to other disciplines and arts. Brought together here in one volume, these scholars offer compelling evidence as to why, over the last few decades, documentary has come to the centre of screen studies. -- BOOK BLURB ISBN: 9781844573417 Contents: Acknowledgments -- Notes on Contributors -- Foreword: Why Documentaries Matter -- Introduction: The Filmed Documentary --; PART I: DOCUMENTARY VALUES -- The Question of Evidence, the Power of Rhetoric and Documentary Film: Bill Nichols -- 'I'll Believe It When I Trust the Source': Documentary Images and Visual Evidence: Carl Plantinga -- 'The Performance Documentary': The Performing Film-Maker, the Acting Subject: Stella Bruzzi -- On Truth, Objectivity and Partisanship: The Case of Michael Moore: Douglas Kellner -- CGI and the End of Photography as Evidence: Taylor Downing -- Drawn From Life: The Animated Documentary: Andy Glynne -- Dramadoc?

These include television's radically new ecology, with formats a growth area. Docudrama in film has also burgeoned recently, partly because the industries themselves have grown closer and partly because of continued interest in the lives of the famous and of those in the news. International co-production now exploits many different screening opportunities and possibilities, with the result that docudrama has become a cinematic as well as televisual staple. Docudrama is not only popular with audiences; it also causes constant flurries of commentary and controversy. Concerns about 'borders' and 'boundaries', a questioning of documentary's claim to represent the real, doubts about the popular audience's ability to cope with new approaches to the ideas of witness, testimony and confession, authenticity and truth - all these issues fuel the debate. This new edition situates docudrama and its ongoing debates within a newly vibrant and still highly contentious field of practice. This book will interest readers - academic and general - with an interest in fact-based drama in film, theatre and television " -- BOOK BLURB ISBN: 9780719084478 Contents: -- acknowledgments -- introduction to the second edition -- Working on docudrama -- The law and regulation: docudrama in the new millennium -- Codes, conventions and change -- Keywords, key debates -- Histories: antecedents and first phase -- Histories: second-phase developments --

Paula Rabinowitz discusses the ways in which these four media shaped truth-claims and political agency over the decades: in the 1930s about poverty, labor and popular culture during the depression; in the 1960s, about the Vietnam War, racism, work and the counterculture; and in the 1980s, about feminist and gay critiques of gender, history, narrative and cinema...Rabinowitz argues that the gendering ov vision that occurs when narratives conform to conventional genres profoundly affects the relation of documentarian to subject. She goes on to define this gendering of vision in documentary as an ethnographic process. Ultimately, this polemical study challenges the construction of the spectato in psychoanalytic film theory, and articulates a new model for theorizing power relations in culture and history." -- taken from back cover.
