Professor Cagle Publishes Article in “Cinema Journal”

Prof. Chris Cagle has published an article in the latest volume (Fall 2012) of Cinema Journal. Entitled “Postclassical Nonfiction: Narration in the Contemporary Documentary,” this essay examines contemporary mainstream documentaries for the patterns through which they create meaning and argument. Using examples like Hoop Dreams, Daughter from Danang, and Helvetica, it explores these films as a distinct approach combining traditional formal documentary form with direct cinema’s open argumentation.
