The Documentary Film Book (Hardback)Brian Winston (author)
- Not available
In a series of fascinating essays, key international experts discuss the theory of documentary, outline current understandings of its history (from pre-Flaherty to the post-Griersonian world of digital 'i-Docs'), survey documentary production (from Africa to Europe, and from the Americas to Asia), consider documentaries by marginalised minority communities, and assess its contribution to other disciplines and arts. Brought together here in one volume, these scholars offer compelling evidence as to why, over the last few decades, documentary has come to the centre of screen studies.

"The Documentary Film Book increases awareness about a highly undermined form and offers great knowledge on the subject. It is a large book filled with many scholarly insights, so it should not be rushed through. It's a fascinating exhibition of thought and I would recommend it to anyone who holds a strong passion or interest in documentary cinema." (Karsu Nalbantoglu, Film Matters, Vol. 7 (2), 2016)
