Scenario in documentary: Case study Screwball

Just like with a fiction film, a scenario is indispensable for a documentary. But how exactly does that work? Doesn’t a documentary want to avoid manipulating reality? Of the many possible formats, re-enactments - the re-enactment of events with actors - are often the subject of discussion. It is an intervention that offers opportunities as well as pitfalls. Director Billy Corben shares how he used actors in the hilarious "Screwball" in a very creative way. Language: English
