The advanced course Tools of Directing Documentary 2 focuses on the analysis of documentary cinema by acknowledged independent directors, whose original contemporary works have been presented in the documentary festival circuit.

Not representing the mainstream approach to documentary, but rather investigating important issues and exploring complex forms, their films inspire the students by challenging their perspective on „what is independent documentary cinema nowadays“, in its variety of forms.

Going beyond the classical modes of documentary, the course explores the panorama of filmmakers who stood out for their talent in approaching new topics, and brave choices of representation, often characterized by a high degree of ambiguity and arguably success.

The goal is to reflect on the relationship between form and subject, in terms of cinematic language, experimentation with the form, always raising disputable questions about authenticity, stylization and topic choice.

How to distinguish a relevant topic? How to approach it possibly in a new form?

Is the chosen form appropriate to the subject? On which elements did the author fail/succeed?

The selection of films aims to present controversial works, whose impact and degree of success is disputable.

In this more difficult field of representation Tools of Directing Documentary 2 searches to raise awareness and discussion on the contemporary documentary scenario.
