[rather than starting with a single queston, I'd like to focus on complicating and tearing concepts apart, and by doing so letting them be the themes for this independent degree project.
the themes I've explored in this timeline representation of my research at the MA programme "Documentary Processes" (and in depth in my essay) are:
POWER STRUCTURES - in the meeting with another person, I've analyzed various situations of mine and others' behaviours in the meeting and tried to find the answer to why we behave the way we do?
DISTANCE - what does it mean for a documentary film to create distance (fiction) through working with reenactment?
DIALOGUE - with the characters in a film, how does it affect the final film and its positioning that the characters are invited to participate in curating scenes // writing the script?
THE UNCONDITIONAL (det förutsättningslösa) - what are the tools, and what social rules decide if a meeting is unconditional?
IMAGINATIVE ABILITY - which relates to empathy. what is best practice when it comes to imagination, while still staying true to an authentic documentary story?]
