But is truth or reality readily available, easily acquired, or undisputed? Or do documentaries convey illusions of reality? What aesthetic means are used to build these illusions?
Crafting truth illuminates the way these films tell their stories; how they use the camera, editing, sound, and performance; what rhetorical devices they employ; and what the theoretical, practical, and ethical implications of those choices are. Complex documentary concepts are presented through easily accessible language, images, and a discussion of a wide range of films and videos to encourage new ways of thinking about and seeing nonfiction cinema.

He traces themes such as the influence of US crime drama on English film, and film adaptations of literary works as they appear in screen work from the 1930s to the present. A Canterbury Tale and the documentary Listen to Britain are analyzed in the context of village pageants and other wartime explorations of Englishness at risk. English crime dramas are set against the writings of George Orwell, while a famous line from Noel Coward also leads to a discussion of music and image in works including Brief Encounter and Look Back in Anger. Screen adaptation is also broached in analyses of the 1985 BBC version of Dickens's Bleak House and Merchant-Ivory's The Remains of the Day." - BOOK BLURB Notes: Includes notes and index ISBN: 9780253221773 More info

This book also offers new approaches to understanding Australian cinema, and show how Australian culture and society changed during the period of Chauvel's work. Running through these changes, however, are continuities based on Australia's status as an 'import culture' and the consequent frailties of its cultural identity."

She is reputed to have danced nude for the Fuhrer. She is linked to Goebbels, Striecher, Borman, and other evil luminaries of the Nazi party. After the war, she was investigated by the Nuremburg Commission, and found innocent; she had never been a Party member. Yet Leni's cinema helped to create the myth of Nazi supremacy; her sense of drama and destiny, her imagery, mesmerized Germany during Hitler's climb to power. Was she responsible? Was she conscious of the political meaning of her work? Or was she a naive opportunist, an incomparable technician, exploiting the chance of a lifetime? Was she Hitler's mistress, as has been alleged? Or was she just a free spirit, the pagan sensualist of her own films? These are only some of the intriguing questions Glenn B. Infield explores in Leni Riefenstahl: The Fallen Film Goddess." -- BOOK BLURB Notes: Includes index; Bibliography: p. 262-267 ISBN: 0690011679 LON: 76007084; 760131 More info
