Postmodern, cognitive, intentional, instrumental and semio-pragmatic theories of documentary film
Languages of publication
The author compares and contrasts theoretical approaches which contemporary film theorists and philosophers employ in an effort to capture the essence of non-fiction cinema. He explicates postmodern, cognitive, intentional, instrumental and semio-pragmatic theories of documentary film as we encounter them in the contemporary theoretical reflection, especially in works by Gregory Currie, Noël Carroll, Bill Nichols, David Bordwell, Carl Plantinga, or Roger Odin. Detailed attention is paid especially to three concepts/definitions/approaches to documentary production: Documentary as Indexical Record (Currie), Documentary as Assertion (Carroll) and Asserted Veridical Representation (Plantinga). The study aims to stimulate a discussion of Slovak documentary production that would reflect the current state of thinking about documentary film.
