Unit 1: Part 2: FilmForms
Experimental Documentary and theArchive
 The Problem withDocumentary
'The contradictory or paradoxical thing is thatin a documentary the real things depicted areliable to lose their reality by beingphotographed and presented in thatdocumentary way, and there's no poetry inthat. In poetry, something else happens. Hardto say what it is. Presence let's say, soul or spirit, an empathy with whatever it is that'sdwelt upon, feeling for it - to the point of identification.' - Margaret Tait
Since the very earliest photography there hasbeen a sense that an image can reveal thetruth of the world. Photographic images assoon as they could be reproduced werethought to be able to say more about whatwas actual than words ever could.
