abstract
This is the first book length study to explore an area of film that has gathered increased attention in Documentary Studies. Dara Waldron explores `near documentary' as a mode of film which involves the creative intervention in real-life settings, offering extensive case study analyses. He proposes that `near documentary' is a mode of filmmaking which brings to fruition the tenuous relationship between artistic and epistemological inquiry, and can be distinguished from other modes of art documentary film: 'artefaction' (as defined by Stella Bruzzi) 'documentary fiction' (as coined by Jacques Ranciere) `art documentary' and the poetic mode (as defined by Bill Nichols).
