Non-Fiction Films

To watch a lot of non-fiction films. And enjoy them *perhaps immensely). Meanwhile: to consider the idea of the nonfiction film from its beginning to the present day; to explore a range of approaches, styles, and individuals associated with the documentary idea; to discuss social and ethical issues that emerge around documentary film making; finally to consider how our own lives (as film makers, film critics, and normal people) are informed and shaped by documentary sensibilities. (or ought to be).
