Course Description

GLS 566: Documentary Film: Moving Images

Instructor: Barbara Michael (michaelb AT uncw DOT edu)

One documentary film will be shown and discussed each week so that students will develop an awareness of how these films, both classics and current-day documentaries, were put together. Narration, interview, historical photos and footage as well as actual filming of action, people and scenes will be analyzed to see how a documentary story is told. The student will be able to see how various video and audio segments make up a documentary and will become a more critical viewer of documentaries.
