Summary
Examines documentary films. This title features the essays that analyze questions regarding the usefulness and legitimacy of documentary testimony: What is the value of the historical archive the televised public hearings or activist online videos constitute? And is it made part of the official record, or dismissed as renegade or ephemeral?
