This seminar examines many of the social, ethical and philosophical problems and issues — i.e., questions of authenticity, representation, voice, authority, form and politics — surrounding non-fiction and documentary film and video. It explores a range of non-fiction film practices through the application of anthropological, historical, gender, and cultural studies theory to a range of genres including counter-colonial, cinema verité, direct cinema, ethnographic, instructional, historical, and auteurist documentaries. Topics covered include the boundaries of documentary/non-fiction discourse, documentary poetics, historical representation on film, non-western documentary and feminism, and the essayistic in film and video.
