With reference to two films from the course, explore and examine the question framed by Bill Nichols (2010:45], ‘why are ethical issues central to documentary filmmaking?’ In your answer give specific examples from the two films you have selected, and investigate the particular issues that each film raises in relation to the ethical and documentary filmmaking. Consider ethical issues in relation to 1) the filmmaker and his or her subject (the subject of the documentary); 2) the relationship between the filmmaker and the audience; and 3) the relationship between the audience and the subject of the documentary.
‘Research Essay’ means that you are expected to do independent research on your chosen topic. The more extensive and in-depth that research is, the better you are likely to do. Your markers will be looking for a minimum 6-8 references on top of any relevant readings from the course. You are expected to demonstrate your familiarity with any material relevant to your topic that has been set as required reading for this course. Because this is required reading, it does not count towards the ‘research’ aspect of the essay, but if you fail to make use of the relevant required reading, you will lose marks.
Assessment criteria: Your essay will be assessed in relation to the following criteria; A: Critical Engagement and Reflection; B: Structure, Argument & Reasoning; C: Research; and D: Expression, Presentation & Formatting; E: Participation (evident engagement and participation with/in documentary study, and the course). See the feedback and grading information at the end of this assignment sheet.
