The author provides a comprehensive history of the committed documentary from the early days of cinema to the present day, including a discussion of some of the major filmmakers, filmmaking groups, and filmmaking practices linked to committed documentary making. The author also provides a detailed exploration of the committed documentary project as it operates today; including an examination of participatory documentary making activities on the part of the Chinese Staff and Workers Association, a New York City based workers' organization; an examination of the role committed documentary makers play as political entrepreneurs within transnational advocacy networks; and an examination of the political positioning of the work of the influential U.S. documentary filmmaker Robert Greenwald. The author argues that the committed documentary should be viewed not as a representation of reality, but should instead be viewed as a means by which political realities are constructed and contested. To explore this theme, he focuses in particular on the making and distribution of 'small' documentary films and videos; including political organizing and activist films/videos linked to the activities of social movements and distributed through parallel non-traditional distribution networks"--Leaf v+-+0515746245+-+0515746245Fri Mar 21 16:13:11 EDT 2014batch23169
