This pathbreaking collection of original essays examines the moral rights of the subjects of documentary film, photography, and television and includes a series of provocative case studies on: the documentaries of Frederick Wiseman; British documentaries of the 1930s; General Westmoreland's libel suit against CBS; the film Witness and its portrayal of the Amish; the film The Gods Must be Crazy and its portrayal of the San people of southern Africa; and the treatment of Arabs and gays on television.
