IS IT REAL? THE EMPATHIC GUIDE OF THE CINEMA DOCUMENTARIST

Presentation of the book by Gianfranco Pennone
What is reality? This title would seem to herald one of those philosophical essays for eggheads that can be found on the shelves of specialist bookshops. This book, however, has a different goal: the at times provocative desire of the author is to address not only those who work in the field of the ‘cinema of reality’, but also the viewer. That same viewer who today, assailed by a myriad inputs, comes across and often stumbles over an increasingly ambiguous representation of reality. On the strength of thirty years’ experience and an attentive focus on young aspiring filmmakers (the author, among other things, teaches directing), Pannone takes us on an original journey into the fascinating work of the documentary director, whom he likes to call a ‘cinedocumentarist’, convinced that the documentary view is linked not only to content, as a long-standing commonplace dictates, but above all to the language of images and the skillful creative use that can be made of them.
