The Documentary Tradition; From Nanook to Woodstock.
Jacobs, Lewis
This survey of the development of documentary film from its beginnings to the present includes more than 100 readings. The editor describes the book as a first step toward a history of the documentary idiom with particular emphasis on American contributions. The book is divided into five sections; each section focuses on a decade of filmmaking since 1922 and the first documentary--Robert Flaherty's "Nanook of the North." The section on films made from 1960-70 includes articles on Warrendale, Woodstock, Dead Birds and the Titicut Follies, as well as articles about documentaries in general by Lewis Jacobs, Arthur Schlesinger and Richard Leacock.
