This book explores key themes in current documentary from a number of perspectives—social and political; digital technological and observational / reality. Framed by a substantial theoretical and historical introduction to documentary studies by the editors, the book then comprises a number of essays by practitioners, academics and academic-practitioners working in documentary in Ireland. The book charts key changes in Irish society over the past fifteen years as they relate to documentary practice and explores, through an array of diverse voices, whether documentary initiates and/or reflects these changes. The book situates documentary practice in the wider social, political and cultural context of recent Irish society.
