Dramaturgie für Dokumentarfilme

Documentary film structure is based on the confluence of narrative content and the audience's emotional experience while watching it. We need to keep a dual perspective while shaping our films – organizing the footage in a logical narrative sequence that also has the maximum emotional impact on the audience.
In this workshop, you will learn the 12 Essential Elements of Documentary Storytelling that you can immediately apply to your projects. You will also learn how archetypal structures and genre strategies create a unity that engages the widest audience and has the greatest social impact.

Film examples include "The Square", "Rivers and Tides", "Daughter from Danang", "Searching for Sugerman", "Prom Night in Mississippi", and the PBS docu-series "Woman, War and Peace".
