  1. DISCUSSION BOARD 5 1990s-2010s QUESTIONS – choose any 2 to answer in your Post:
  2. If you believe the documentary is a hybrid, identify which Modes it is mixing and discuss how successful it is, or if it is mixing too much, or if the mixing is getting in the way of learning about the subject. Cite a specific example or moment from the film and discuss in detail.
  3. Identify if the film was shot using digital video technology – cell phone, DV camera – does this result in low quality footage that is too poor to take seriously? Does this detract from the subject, or does it not matter due to the importance of the access and subject matter? Cite a specific example or moment from the film and discuss in detail.
  4. Identify if the documentary filmmaker employs First-Person strategies – analyze if this results in their ego getting in the way of them covering the subject deeply and honestly. Discuss if you feel they should step back and seek the truth more than putting on an entertaining show. Cite a specific example or moment from the film and discuss in detail.
  5. Identify if the film is a fake documentary or mockumentary – discuss if it is annoying to you to try and figure out what is real or fake, if you feel manipulated or fooled for no reason, or if you enjoy not knowing what is true and like trying to figure it out. Should this subject be off limits for such a strategy, or is it valid with you? Cite a specific example or moment from the film and discuss in detail.
  6. Identify if the documentary is Performative – discuss if you feel there are too many fictional devices employed and too much role playing that distort the reality as they film it, or if you feel they are getting at a deeper truth this way than if they were just observing the reality. Cite a specific example or moment from the film and discuss in detail.
  7. Does this documentary tackle any social issues? Do you think the technology or new methods of making and distributing documentaries helped the filmmakers explore this topic? Examine how the film tackles social issues and cite specific details to make your case.
  8. Can the documentary in any way be considered Reality TV? Do you believe it is actually a documentary in any way, or does it seem something else completely? Is there obvious casting, scripting, role playing, contrived situations and manipulative editing? What is the purpose of the filmmakers for this film? What is it a document of – reality or some warped, distorted version of it? And even if it is warped, do you still think it is valid and enjoy it? Cite a specific example or moment from the film and discuss in detail.
