Creating documentaries is a process of applying form to chaos. There are inherent tensions in the medium between manipulation and reality that can best be understood by breaking down scene-by-scene editing techniques. Filmmaker, writer and editor Robert Greene will dive into the constructions, contradictions and complexities of making a documentary by doing a moment-to-moment analysis of the first ten minutes of his critically acclaimed 2014 filmActress. How and why were scenes re-ordered? What was the intended effect of the film’s stylization? How does Actress attempt to embody and dramatize the built-in messiness of the form?
