Editorial Reviews

Review

"This book deserves a large audience and should become a benchmark for our thinking about non-fiction film." --Historical Journal of Film, Radio, and Television

"Plantinga's clear and vigilant survey helps us to see more clearly where the most fruitful lines of new inquiry lie." --Media, Culture, and Society

". . . the best starting point thus far for any reader interested in understanding the basic issues of documentary film theory."
       
--Film Quarterly --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

Book Description

Rhetoric and Representation in Nonfiction Film examines the basic theoretical issues that g round any in-depth study of nonfiction film and video. Carl Plantinga surveys the functions of moving images in visual communication and shows how nonfiction discourse presents information through structural and stylistic analysis, among other topics. Plantinga also examines several fundamental philosophical issues that are at the heart of nonfiction representation and communication, including the nature and functions of objectivity, reflexivity, and truth-telling.
