ABOUT THIS BOOK
Soul of the Documentary offers a groundbreaking new approach to documentary cinemaIlona Hongisto stirs current thinking by suggesting that the work of documentary films is not reducible to representing what already exists. By closely reading a diverse body of films—from The Last Bolshevik to Grey Gardens—Hongisto shows how documentary cinema intervenes in the real by framing it and creatively contributes to its perpetual unfolding. The emphasis on framing brings new urgency to the documentary tradition and its objectives, and provokes significant novel possibilities for thinking about the documentary’s ethical and political potentials in the contemporary world.
