the trouble with "objectivity" throughout the semester we've been discussing t he power of the director to shape the meaning of a film through his decisions regarding mise-en-scene, cinematography how to be objective? it is difficult to avoid putting your own personal stamp on a film over which you have control how might a director sway his audience by making particular chooses regarding the mise-en-scene? the cinematography? the editing? the sound? (ie: in the Thin Blue Line , two people came up over and over…the one who was falsely accused and the one who was the actual murderer, both shown in their jumpsuits….how do those color choices affect how we view these two people? the innocent man in a white jumpsuit, (some people even though it was a workers costume) versus the bad guy in the orange. or how does the musical choices prepare us?) even the most conscientious of film makers cannot help but put a little bit of their own views into a film. perfect objectivity is impossible the genre of documentary includes even the most biased forms of propaganda. these too are "creative treatments of actuality"
