"A jewel of a book that is unlike any other in the field of documentary studies. It will bring to a far broader audience a rigorous critical intelligence and sensibility, seasoned by years of experience, imbued with a bracing clarity of thought and expression."—Michael Renov, University of Southern California

"Vaughan's ruminations on the relationship between documentary, language, and the world, as well as on the implications—at once ethical and epistemological—of the digital revolution, are invariably original and enlightening. I know of no precedent for the manner in which he combines philosophic precision with grounding in actual filmmaking practice. Vaughan is the most singular—and discomfitting—voice that we have had in documentary studies for a long, long time."—Lucien Taylor, coauthor of Cross-Cultural Filmmaking
