Published review:

"This is a must-have insight into modern documentary; the principles that govern it and the conventions it often breaks. It deserves a place on the shelves of film commissioners, film students and documentary consumers as prominent as the place these documentary filmmakers have carved for themselves on our screens." - www.shootingpeople.org

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
'Maxine Baker's book...could not come at a better time. Features interesting interviews with nonfiction moviemakers whose work you might not be as familiar with....This book serves as the perfect read for both the aspiring documentarian and the avid doc fan.' - MovieMaker magazine

"This is a must-have insight into modern documentary; the principles that govern it and the conventions it often breaks. It deserves a place on the shelves of film commissioners, film students and documentary consumers as prominent as the place these documentary filmmakers have carved for themselves on our screens." - www.shootingpeople.org

'Maxine Baker's inspiring analysis and discussion of an important selection of contemporary documentary filmmakers and their work is going to make this book essential reading for all my documentary students.'
Dr Erik Knudsen, Programme Director, MA in Television Documentary Production, University of Salford, UK

'I just hope that the younger filmmakers will read this book. Inspired, they will reject those followers of format and in so doing bloom and excite their audience with their own innovative and authored way of representing documentary life.' - Royal Television Society Journal
