More praise for Documentary Storytelling

Sheila Curran Bernard’s Documentary Storytelling is an essential, pragmatic, common-sense approach to making nonfiction films for the student and/or first-time filmmaker, based on the author’s deep awareness of documentary film history and theory, and her intimate knowledge of how today’s most important documentarians formulate their works.

—Gerald Peary, film critic, The Boston Phoenix

While documentaries are nonfiction, they are certainly not objective, and even the smallest choices in writing, filming, interviewing, narrating, or scoring can drastically alter the perspective of the film, and in turn, the audience. Bernard is keenly aware of the power of persuasive images, and her insistence on complexity and integrity is a consistent theme throughout the book.
