Capturing Reality: The Art of Documentary

Capturing Reality: The Art of Documentary investigates a unique cinematic genre though encounters with some of its most influential practitioners. Over 30 luminaries ? including Albert Maysles, Errol Morris, Alanis Obomsawin, Michel Brault, Nick Broomfield, Kim Longinotto and that great iconoclast Werner Herzog ? offer insight into their craft while reflecting on the nature of representation and the perennially contested status of the ?truth.? More than 100 clips from landmark films enliven the discussion, offering a panoramic overview of contemporary documentary cinema.
