Authentic Footage (2020)
Digital Video with sound. (6 mins 30)
Authentic Footage questions the reliability of the director as narrator.
Both in cinema and in reportage, the one-shot has become a hallmark of truth and reliability through its indication of ‘real-time’. Authentic Footage uses its form as a one-shot film to demonstrate how even an unbroken, unedited take might contain a manipulated narrative.
