Documentary Film Review

Documentary Film Review

In this class we have identified as one of our objectives the ability to fully engage, in critical ways, popular culture and its influence upon our political selves, our political sensibilities. ÿWith our focus on “deep differences we find ourselves examining both documentary and feature-length film texts. ÿThe purpose of this assignment is to compare and contrast the political story-telling of both mediums when focused on the same subject or subject matter.ÿIn 300-500 words share whether or not you believe theÿassigned documentary film text has the potential to transform ones political sensibilities and how theÿdocumentary film text compares to the feature-length non-documentary film text thatÿexamines the same historicalÿpolitical movement and/or figure.ÿÿÿAnd, if you believe that your personal political sensibilities have been (re)shaped or transformed by a particular film and/or style of film, say so.ÿÿÿAgain, the objective here is to share your thoughts pertaining to the major thesis presented in Democracy and Difference.
