An engaging read that explores independent documentary film in India as a site of resistance. This book looks at how independent Indian documentary film reworks the relationship between film-makers, their narratives, their subjects and their audience, challenging the dominant idea of documentary as a discourse of the real. Based on close textual analysis, conversations with film-makers and drawing on Breitrose's cinéma-vérité film-maker as a 'fly in the soup', this work explores the place of documentary within the Indian public sphere.
