Document Summary

Documentaries often adopt a form of organization which differentiates them from narra- tive films; when they do, that form is typically rhetorical or categorical. Documentary: e. g. news reports: say they are showing events in the proper light and rep- resents in a way in which we become to always believe. Yet, in defining documentary we also must think in terms of an implicit contract that ex- ists between those who produce and distribute documentaries and those who watch them, both of whom regard documentary as fundamentally truthful. Non-narrative formal systems: categorical: breaks down subjects into parts or types of parts. (catalogue, rhetorical: presents an argument and lays out evidence to support it. (argument) I might have seen and heard had we been present when the events occurred. -involves a sequence of sights and sounds which create a self-contained, imagined world. -but these can (and do) relate to the world we know.
