In fact, in the 21st century, one might even venture to say it is a staple of the genre.

In particular, how are we to reconcile the utopian promises of neoliberal rhetoric from its dystopian outcomes?

Dokumentarische Filme bilden für die Geschichts-, Kultur-/Medien- und Sozialwissenschaften eine wichtige, bislang weitgehend unerschlossene Quelle der Erkenntnisgewinnung. Ein Blick in heutige Medienkulturen zeigt, dass gesellschaftliche Kommunikation in Film, Fernsehen oder Internet von dokumentarischen Formen und Formaten maßgeblich mitbestimmt wird.
