Ethics in Documentary History

Lecturers: Attila Kékesi, Zsuzsanna Gellér-Varga

The filmmaker’s ethics profoundly defines his or her documentary practice. By analysing a selection of notable films the students will learn how to recognise and manage ethical issues.

The course focuses on the screening and class discussion of 10-12 documentaries or film excerpts that raise ethical questions.

The analysis of these films will give students additional knowledge about how to build and maintain relationships with film participants, whilst enlarging their awareness of ethical issues implied in the conduct of a documentary film director.

From this learning experience students should be able to understand and manage sensitive situations and ethical problems that frequently appear in the filmmaking process, and to use the gained knowledge in both their film exercises and their later work.
