Abstract:

"In discussing films such as Touching the Void (2003), Capturing the Friedmans (2003) and the work of Nick Broomfield, this timely introduction to the growing field of documentary explores the definition and understanding of the form, as well as the relationship between documentary and drama, specifically the notion of reconstruction and re-enactment. Paul Ward also examines animated documentaries, the meeting point of comedy and documentary modes, the ability of documentary to accurately represent historical events, and feature-length contemporary works that have achieved widespread cinematic release."--Jacket.
