This session raises and addresses questions of choice during documentary production: how does one present history from sparse audio-visual evidence; how does one balance the need to convey an idea to the public without overstepping ethical boundaries; what has the increase in reality programming and cable-channel documentary productions done to complicate traditional documentary agreements between filmmaker and subject; what are the challenges of depicting the realities of Native Americans to wider audiences?
Moderator: Thomas Mascaro, Bowling Green University
Panelists: Leighton C. Peterson, Miami University (Ohio); Shooting Back: The Complexities of Representation in Native American Documentaries
Kathleen Ryan, University of Colorado; Lack of Evidence: Documenting the History of Women Accepted for Volunteer Emergency Service during WWII
Nancy Carlson, Ball State University; Faking the Shot vs. Public Awareness: Ethical Issues in Wildlife Conservation Films
