A multidisciplinary proposal for a partnership nature film
Brown, Jennifer Lee.
MetadataShow full item record
I propose that contemporary natural history documentary films need to incorporate multiple cultural disciplines or perspectives like critical studies, environmental philosophy, dialectical biology, and documentary film theory. A multidisciplinary nature film creates a partnership representation of humans and nature absent in natural history documentary films. I use critical rhetoric and examples from contemporary nature films to argue that a partnership nature film showing humans as part of nature and both humans and nature with respect is compatible with conservation and incompatible with a profit-driven commercial broadcast system.
