The British Documentary Film Movement, 1926 1946 - Swann, Paul Paul, Swann
(*)
Swann, Paul Paul, Swann:
The British Documentary Film Movement, 1926 1946 - hardcover

ISBN: 9780521334792

[ED: Hardcover], [PU: Cambridge University Press], The most important and internationally influential development in British cinema was the documentary film movement led by John Grierson in the 1930s and 1940s. Paul Swann's study is a political and social history of this movement, which was characterized by actuality-based films made outside the commercial industry. Based upon new examinations of official government records, this book provides a fascinating picture of how Grierson manipulated the civil service bureaucracy both for his own ends and, in his view, for the good of his country. The documentary movement was both a socially conscious group intent upon raising the consciousness - and consciences - of viewers, and something like a film school, providing opportunities to fledging film-makers. Working in reaction to the escapist Hollywood films that then dominated British screens, the documentary filmmakers drew upon traditions such as Soviet realism and the European avant-garde and used ordinary men and women instead of actors. Swann offers a fresh look at a rare moment in the history of cinema, when a different mode of production, philosophy, and source of funding permitted a determined group to create a distinguished body of work. His book is a provocative examination of the role of the state in Grierson's efforts to forge an indigenous film culture as an alternative to the American feature film.
