This is a co-requisite course with SAC 301 Documentary Production, which covers the production aspects of nonfiction film and video. Students must take both courses, which allow them to thoroughly integrate documentary study and production. SAC 320 examines documentary practice from the invention of the medium to the present day, paying particular attention to the implications of new technologies like television, video, and computers for nonfiction production. We will be mindful of the historical context for the emergence of any nonfiction form, however, the strong emphasis will be upon the interaction of theory and practice in relation to issues of social import, political value, representing otherness, as well as claims to authenticity and objectivity. The linkage with SAC 301 will provide students a unique opportunity to bring theory into practice

Enrollment is limited to 18.

*Please note, students also must enroll in SAC 301.
