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?

Michael Moore : filmmaker, newsmaker, cultural icon / Matthew H. Bernstein, editor
Ann Arbor: University of Michigan Press, c2010.
Call No: 81MOORE BER Source: US Place: Ann Arbor Publisher: University of Michigan Press PubDate: c2010 PhysDes: 325 p. : ill. ; 24 cm. Series: Class, Culture Subject: MOORE, MICHAEL Summary: Over the past fifteen years, Michael Moore has transformed himself from a marginal filmmaker into a cultural icon, unofficial spokesperson for liberals and the left, and target for conservative criticism, Book author, film director, television personality, and Web presence, Moore is now a one-man cultural phenomenon. Although biographies of Moore have appeared and articles in scholarly journals, film magazines, and popular news media have featured him, this is the first comprehensive volume focusing on the Moore phenomenon. It explores Moore's work in film and elsewhere, bringing diverse perspectives on his activities and status as voice of liberal America and the disenfranchised working class. Topics examined include the disjunction between Moore's celebrity status and everyman, middle-western persona, his self-mocking ironic sensibility, his tendency to diagnose American social and political problems in terms of class rather than gender, his reception abroad, and his uneasy --
relationship with the conventios of documentatry filmmaking. The contributors are leading scholars and film critics, including Paul Arthur, Cary Elza, Jeffrey P. Jones, Douglas Kellner, Richard Kilborn, William Luhr, Charles Musser, Richard R. Ness, Miles Orvell, Richard Porton, Sergio Rizzo, Christopher Sharrett, Gaylyn Studlar, and David Tetzlaff. The volume features both analyses of his most successful films. The result is a definitive assessment of Moore's career to date. --Book Jacket ISBN: 9780472051038 Donation: donated by Senses of Cinema, 2013 Contents: Overviews. Introduction / Matthew H.
