Real Reels: Exploring Documentary Film (FYS)
Spring 2024
Section: 01  

Since the early days of film, the documentary form has grown and evolved as an attempt to capture the "real" onscreen. This course offers exposure to a broad array of documentary films and poses questions on topics ranging from story modes to spectatorship, criticism to ethics, propaganda to audio design. What can an immersion in the form teach us about the meaning of truth? What can it teach us about ourselves?
