Research Tip

Finding Documentary Films

Your best bet may be searching for specific filmmakers and film titles.  Many documentary films are organized by the subject of the documentary only.  The style or genre of documentary is rarely addressed (i.e. direct cinema).  Works by prominant filmmakers are not differentiated from general educational and documentary works. ‚Äč
