Description - Theorizing Documentary by Michael Renov
Theorizing Documentary is the first work to address a wide range of theoretical issues specific to the documentary form. Documentaries encompass a wide range of forms; educational TV, personality profiles, ethnography, cine-poems, polemic tracts, and autobiography. What unites these types of film is their common bond with the historical real,' the domain of lived experience. Today, as fictional and nonfictional forms are becoming increasingly hybrid (TV docu-drama, historically based feature films such as Oliver Stone's JFK , infotainment,' tabloid television), the question what is documentary?' is particularly compelling.
