Day 10 – Monday Bloody Monday

2002-07-08

Two speakers today during class, one that works with the bbc, the other with the bfi. We learned about how modern documentaries are deceitful in the name of creating a mystery where there might have not been one before. Also learned that there is racism here (in addition to the more dominant classism), and learned even more how filmmakers dealt with Margaret Thatcher. The film reaction is a bit subtler than the cricket bat, but definitely as interesting.
