Experimental Documentary
Fall 2022
Taught By: Genevieve Yue
Section: A

CRN: 14290

Credits: 3

In the past twenty years, a form of film and moving image practice provisionally called “experimental documentary” has emerged on the festival circuit. In Europe and North America especially, but also globally, dozens of new festivals and sidebar programs have sprouted showing works that foreground what curator and critic Okwui Enwezor described as “art’s engagement with social life.” These include works of sensory ethnography, blended docufictions, observational investigations, and essayistic reflections, as well as the many historical antecedents for such works. This course will examine the recent phenomenon of experimental documentary, its histories, practitioners, and the infrastructures that support it. NOTE: Students who register for the UG section will earn undergraduate credit at the completion of the course. Students wishing to earn Graduate credit must register for the graduate section of the course. Students intending to apply a graduate course toward the senior capstone requirement must register for the graduate section. [Track S]
