Documentary Uncertainty

Filmmaker and author, Hito Steyerl, on the instability and uncertainty that surrounds forms of documentary.

From Hito Steyerl: "The more real documentary seems to get, the more we are at a loss conceptually. The more secured the knowledge that documentary articulations seem to offer, the less can be safely said about them—all terms used to describe them turn out to be dubious, debatable and risky."
