Overview

Subject Area: History

Do documentaries tell the truth? Can we rely on them as sources of history? In this course you will watch, analyse and debate how documentary films have both represented and reinvented the past. From the earliest radical Bolshevik pioneers to the home movies of the forties, to the current use of the phone camera to record emergency and war, and even to the wildlife documentary, this course explores how documentary films interpret history, make history and in some cases, change history.
