Soul of the Documentary : Framing, Expression, Ethics (Paperback) (Ilona Hongisto)
About this item
Soul of the Documentary offers a groundbreaking new approach to understanding documentary cinema. Working against current thinking, Ilona Hongisto argues that the documentary does more than merely represent whatis—by capturing actual people, places, and events—but also expresses realities to come. She makes a case for the form as one that is not bound by predetermined ideas or rules, and through close readings of a heterogeneous body of films, she imbues the tradition with a new sense of urgency and vitality.
