This course examines black documentary film by drawing on The Full Frame Archive Film Collection. The Full Frame Documentary Film Festival is the largest film festival in the United States entirely devoted to documentary film. Students enrolled in this class will read canonic texts on the black documentary film, study camera techniques, explore the history of the Full Frame Festival, critique the role of race in social justice filmmaking and interact with documentary filmmakers.
