The Philosophy of Documentary Film: Image, Sound, Fiction, Truth

Philosophy of Popular Culture (2016)
  Copy   BIBTEX

Abstract

Perhaps nowhere in the broad expanse of types of film is the old "quarrel between philosophy and poetry" more evident--and also more vitally relevant--than in the genre or mode of film known as documentary. Documentary film is just another form of poetic imitation, in its variety of instances and complexity of fabrication, it is just as much caught up with the limitations--and effects--of mimetic art, including fiction film. This book affords a prismatic perspective on documentary cinema, inviting the dynamism and diversity of the arts, humanities, social sciences, and even natural sciences together into a shared conversation.
