Published by Intellect Books
Ahead of the print edition being available to purchase online from Magcloud, you can now download issue 12 of The Big Picture to enjoy in its full small screen glory. Ok so it doesn't smell as nice as the print version, but is still rather tasty.

The January/February 2011 issue of The Big Picture Magazine is entitled 'The Big Society' and is themed around ideas of Oppression, Uprising and the Cinema of The Masses.

Along with the usual roundup of classic film posters, features include a look at Ralphy's prized Red Rider BB Gun as an evocative cinematic object, a location focus on Beijing, 1000 words about The Everlasting Influence of Night of the Living Dead, and a profile on Lisbon based painter and illustrator Luis Melo.

Nanook of the North
, likemany lms of its kind, hasbeen criticised for a perceiveddistortion of reality, andfor overtly manipulating itssubject matter. Staged scenesand reconstructions of sealhunts, trading expeditionsand Igloo building, shotover the year Flaherty spentliving with the tribe, paintan evocative, poetic, butpartly constructed portraitof life for Nanook andhis community. Furtherblurring the line betweenfact and ction, ‘Nanook’was in actuality calledAllakariallak and his ‘wife’was one of Flaherty's owntwo common-law partners.The reconstruction (andstaging) of events for lmswas, however, a commontechnique of the era due tothe cumbersome, restrictiveand technologically primitivenature of early static cameras.Flaherty’s lm – seminal,controversial and ambitious – drew the blueprint for thedocumentary as we know ittoday, and is required viewingfor anyone with a seriousinterest in the genre.

,rolling news channels andreality TV, ethical concernsover the representation of real life and the ‘truth’ beingpresented in documentarylms are constantly debated.But these issues havesurrounded the genre sinceits birth. Robert J. Flaherty,a prospector and explorerturned lm-maker, is creditedwith directing the rst full-length documentary,
Nanookof the North
(1922) – a stillremarkable lm showingthe day-to-day struggle forsurvival faced by the Inuit of the Canadian Arctic region.Later classied as beingthe foremost example of ‘salvage ethnography’ (thedocumentation of isolated,endangered or ‘exotic’communities), Flaherty'slm also encapsulated thecomplexities of lming thereal world.
