F14-W15 W FA FILM 3850 3.00 M Documentary Re-enactment

FA FILM 3850 3.00 M - Documentary Re-enactment

Examines the changing uses of re-enactment in the history and understanding of documentary film from early actualities through the documentary movement, docudrama and today's hybrid forms and the importance of these practices in the larger context of documentary theory. In early cinema, re-enactment was seamlessly incorporated into work otherwise composed of actuality footage. With the formalization of documentary as a distinct practice in the 1920s, re-enactment remained a part of the documentarians tool kit, though one that came to be seen as an unfortunate necessity rather than an intrinsic part of documentary's stated objectives. It was only with the rise of cinema vierite filmmaking in the 1950s that the use of re-enactment was banished from the pursuit of the real. In current documentary filmmaking and theory, the use of re-enactment has become more complex both in practical and theoretical terms, often being deliberately invoked for a clearly stated purpose. The course will examine this evolution of re-enactment in documentary by examining a series of works by such as: Edward S. Curtis, Robert Flaherty, Joris Ivens, Peter Watkins, Werner Herzog and Errol Morris.
