Indian Documentary. Film and Filmmakers Independence in Practice

Edinburgh University Press, 2018, 208 p., £75.

Independent documentary is enjoying a resurgence in post-reform India. But in contemporary cinema and media cultures, where ‘independent’ operates as an industry genre or critical category, how do we understand the significance of this mode of cultural production ? Based on detailed onsite observation of documentary production, circulation practices and the analysis of film texts, this book identifies independence as a ’tactical practice’, contesting the normative definitions and functions assigned to culture, cultural production and producers in a neoliberal economic system. Focusing on selected filmmakers, the book establishes how they have reorganised the dominance of industrial media, technology and social relations to develop practices that build upon principles of de-economisation, artisanship and interdependence.
