Without doubt the most spectacular development during this decade of social and political unrest was the dramatic growth of the mainstream British documentary movement closely associated with names such as John Grierson and Paul Rotha, which is often described as Britain's most important contribution to world cinema. In these pages for the first time a full and detailed account is given of people involved in the documentary movement and a coherant attempt is made to date and describe their whole output. Rachael Low demonstrates how different documentary styles evolved, developed and changed - and eventually split into two distinct schools of film making.
An equally important innovation in the 1930s was the first use of film for educational purposes. Rachael Low records in detail the many experiments and debates held to determine the best use of films in schools and the often disappointing attempts to produce satisfactory educational films."--BOOK JACKET Notes: includes bibliographical references; incldues film listing

Many scholars have linked the origins of the discipline to late-1960s developments in the academy such as structuralist theory and student protest. Yet this collection reveals the broader material and institutional forces—both inside and outside of the university—that have long shaped the field. Beginning with the first investigations of cinema in the early twentieth century, this volume provides detailed examinations of the varied social, political, and intellectual milieus in which knowledge of cinema has been generated. The contributors explain how multiple instantiations of film study have had a tremendous influence on the methodologies, curricula, modes of publication, and professional organizations that now constitute the university-based discipline. Extending the historical insights into the present, contributors also consider the directions film study might take in changing technological and cultural environments. -- Publisher description Notes: Includes bibliographical references and index ISBN: 9780822342892 Contents: The Academy and Motion Pictures / Lee Grieveson, Haidee Wasson

Pennebaker, 1967) Summary: "Nonfiction film is the first work to document the whole history of nonfiction film from the 1920s to the present day. The main emphasis of the book is on the British and American cinema and hundreds of documentary, action, and 'actuality' films from Nanook of the North to Woodstock and Gimme Shelter are described, discussed and analysed, including films by the great pioneers such as Robert Flaherty, Basil Wright, John Grierson and Paul Rotha and the new experimental film makers like Richard Leacock, D. A. Pennebaker, Frederick Wiseman and Albert and David Maysles. Richard Barsam provides a critical framework against which the non-fiction film can be studied and enjoyed. Among the many topics covered are early American, Russian and Continental films, the British and American films of the twenties and thirties, the films of World War II and the whole range of styles and subjects of the fifties, sixties and today." -- BOOK BLURB Notes: Originally published: New York : Dutton, 1973; Bibl.: p.317-321. - List of films: p.299-316. - Index ISBN: 0047910313 (Pbk) : ª1.95; 0047910305 LON: 1923477 Contents: 1.
