Examining the vast breadth and diversity of contemporary documentary production, while also situating nonfiction film and video within the cultural, political, and socio-economic history of the region, this book addresses topics such as documentary aesthetics, indigenous media, and transnational filmmaking, among others.
The sure-footed and historically aware manner in which the thirteen contributions home in on their specific topics while panning out to highlight broader regional and historical concerns means that this collection is illuminating and insightful, with much to commend it to novices and specialists alike.
