What is a Documentary?
In the simplest of terms, a documentary is the creative use of storytelling to communicate valuable information about a subject while connecting with audiences on both an intellectual and emotional level.
What truly makes a great documentary is when it is compelling. A compelling documentary conveys an intimate and cinematic portrait of people’s lives and inspires us to expand our perception of the world with a greater sense of clarity and compassion. Considering this, you may feel at an impasse if you are not a filmmaker or are new to the art. Or, perhaps, it only inspires you in furthering your knowledge and mastery of the craft.
Documentaries allow us to learn new information in an invaluable way. Instead of learning through burying our noses in books and developing theories about intangible concepts, we can see the problems being conveyed in action in people’s stories; begging us to feel into the experiences of others with emotional intelligence and thrusting us into action.
Why are Documentaries Important?
As I previously mentioned above, documentaries allow for us to assume the role of another point of view that we may not readily have access to from where we are in the world. We can see and feel the plights of others in a way that moves us and broadens our perspectives on life, humanity, knowledge, and the earth we inhabit.
Documentaries are one of the most prominent and powerful methods for learning new information in our technological age. People are becoming increasingly more apt to learning through watching videos than they are through reading books or sitting through seminars. As such, making poignant and relevant documentaries is an important art form when it comes to conveying a message of grand importance to those who may not have considered it.
Whether it is a documentary about the mass distribution and slaughter of livestock, world hunger, homelessness, or WWII, making a documentary that presents information objectively, and from all sides, is of the utmost importance when it comes to educating and moving the masses to action.
