  • "Filmmakers have been turning their cameras on the real world since the time of the Lumière Brothers - and the documentary genre has sparked impassioned creative debate ever since. What comes into play when filmmakers set out to represent reality? What ethical concerns arise when portraying real people on screen? How does music condition our emotional response to film?
