Title: In the battle for reality: Social documentaries in the U.S.
Author: Aufderheide, Patricia
Abstract: An overview of U.S. social documentary production and use. Social documentaries often openly address power relations in society, with the goal of making citizens and activists aware and motivated to act for social justice, equality and democracy. Documentaries expressly designed to play this role are the subject of this report. Social documentary production and use are described in four, sometimes overlapping areas: professional independent production aimed at television; alternative production; community media; and nonprofit production.
Description: 93-page report with photos, illus., tables, and reference list.
