dc.description.abstractLike photography, documentaries are a representational medium: They record and occasionally reconstruct the everyday reality viewers typically cannot experience themselves. Because photography is an indexical sign signifying truth, audiences understand the documentary, a moving photograph, to signify truth also. However, they are able to make the distinction between the "everyday reality" presented by documentaries and the fictive "reality" of cinematic films.eng
