CMM 372 - Documentary Modes

An exploration through screenings, readings, and discussion of the history and various modes of documentary film and television, from the Lumiere Brothers to the present day, including expository, verite-based, interactive and self-reflexive styles. Subgenres considered also include ethnographic approaches, “mockumentary,” and reality TV. By looking closely at a wide range of documentary motion pictures, students gain new tools for media analysis, historical reference, and production methodology. Satisfies the Social Science core requirement.
