The article is the statement in the “workshop learning experience of students” at the University Theatre & Film Hanoi. The author shares thoughts and experiences about documentary as both a writer’s film has a documentary filmmaker.
During the Vietnam Revolutionary Cinema, the documentary is a very special place. The documentary-topical appeared very early, recording the events of the feudal state as long movie Ninh 2,000 for funeral Tomb King Khai Dinh. Then the film Ton Ton Duc Bao Dai, 800m long, the coronation of Emperor Bao Dai Huong sign company, then the events in the nation in his moves as historic Lake from the President France returns (1946), Battle at The Den O (1946) .. particularly in the North after 1954 to early 1959, when the country was more needy, facilities do not allow even the feature film reflects the fighting spirit and build socialism with the main character is typical this time of the documentary filmmaker who contributed a lot of valuable works such as conference Trung Gia Military, Prisoners of War under our regime, Takeover capital.
In 1959, the film of water on the Bac Hung Hai Bui Dinh Hac director has reached the gold medal at the Moscow Film Festival. And even when the Vietnam film appear first feature film, the documentary is a profound category reflects the ups and downs in the history of our country from war to war, the subsidy period to innovation as steel Accumulation of Vinh Linh Ngoc Quynh director gold medalist in 1971 Moscow film festival, head wind waves director Ngoc Quynh Cu Chi guerrilla’s director Tran Nhu, the front line of Director Hong Sen also successful at the Moscow Film Festival period. The people of my home town, Hanoi in one eye, is it kind of director Tran Van Thuy. But it is also possible that, due to circumstances, the conditions of history, our documentaries are usually restricted to a certain number of topics, primarily reflects two wars and is usually confined to a certain kind of thesis and observations. It is the best film method, it is necessary that the documentary filmmaker can do in the context of the country at that time, but the documentary has taken steps to develop a new, diverse and rich Equally film about finance and can be categorized as:
– Documentary thesis, explain
– Documentary observed
– Documentary poetry
– Documentary Narrative privacy
– Interactive Documentary
– Reflexive Documentary
Along with the development and integration of the social-economic, suppose that we also need to recognize and assess the direction of environmental documentaries in film education and training and the development of more new movies documents. Here in particular the importance assessment of autobiographical documentary brings privacy.
With special education with little attention aesthetic education, philosophy, the arts in general education, further, the selection of input we require no special qualifications, most regular students in the relatively young age and immaturity of knowledge. The awkward personality revealed in the way, the view is often seen in freshman composition of the industry professionals (directors, screenwriters, film). The first composition usually receive their accusations as strangers, lack of real-life, real lack creativity or just repeating the corn craft other classic works.
This can be seen, one thing in common is the author of such books struggling to find “some land” where they can barely put a foot, what about the most familiar, safest way to drop the kite light create stray flying, “about land” that is the understanding of ourselves, the creators themselves with what key to cultivate him as he is at present. Prior to the discovery, evaluation, manipulation of reality into the work, the composer had to go a very long way, and one of the most important is the way to go in his understanding the ego, temperament, aptitudes of each individual, to find a stand I am. This step is difficult and requires courage and patience again.
I remember first writing assignment of homeroom teacher professional scriptwriters have caused a shock gently, that “I tell her about the memories that you have made me ashamed.” Why is she make you ashamed? Why is the image of the mother, whether the mother is creative or fictional narrative, the personal is always associated with images celebrating love best? And after completing this exercise, an exercise is bad, I knew I was not brave enough, to see its beauty in shallow narrow, and that only when you stand out emphatically to observe the anniversary, observed his feelings in a way the most accurate, most intelligent and most differences are to have any work. Through this exercise I also understand the idea of his teacher, that’s brave, not afraid to express, and the most important is an understanding of myself, deeply understanding what governs emotional, rational, and the ability to express that knowledge.
Design thinking, with curiosity, plus the desire to express individuality of each student’s writing is the specialized making a documentary film narrative is essential in the early toddler familiar with the film. First, as mentioned above, there is one way to help students become familiar with the world of creative closest, in order to inspire the creative spirit. Monday to make personal documentary not too demanding on the technical capabilities of the machines, which require large financial ability. Third step is the most directly acquainted with art upon cinema. Documentary demographic narrative requires students to “present” themselves a unique way because no one understands him more than his own, or he has his own understanding of himself as to . It requires bravery, courage reveal themselves in all respects good or bad, whether good or bad, or if you do not have to say-lies-the-side-the-body-his most skillfully enough information to others.
A documentary narratives to the nature of the Truth and thereby also demanding he reveal it with a sense of his own America. With the ability fictional or direct observation, the film is both a director, an actor has its own, through the most important movie you will be presented so that the viewer an image of himself, the most unique, not the second one, the reflection of his knowledge about the surroundings. This is a transition between the real and the fictional, a familiar way to transfer material to finished products. It all depends on the decisions of the filmmakers. A film by and for the people who make movies. The independent spirit is extremely suitable for the development of our film, small cinema requires good dynamic and adaptive.
Looking at a more objective way, we can find the means of expression of today’s documentaries have become more flexible, more abundant. In particular documentary remains the most profound qualities is its ability to reflect direct, trenchant social realism. In our society, a day to turn the pages will demonstrate three words: Pirates-KILL-raped, but that is the reality of most dominant society we do not? I immediately replied that no, that is really missing here is the voice of free speech. What are the hottest behind “firewalls”. So the documentary, with its dynamism, to once again do the mission it has done well in the past, but this time with a different complexion. The documentary itself is not restricted to the traditional category to account, fill it to overflowing interference fictional create true works just full of creative again. Almost no distinct boundary categorization, only the sole film called only.
Here where creativity is the highest level reached is no longer reflect the true cinema again that contrary to dominant cinematic realism. This is also the direction of the unique power with the likes of Iran A.Kiarosatami, M.Mokhambaf. Iran is indeed a cinematic phenomenon extremely interesting and worth learning. First of all, this cinema has similarities with us, along with a strict censorship on sensitive issues, hence would like to pursue the major themes of society, the filmmakers had to film under conditions of extreme, and in the simplest terms they were pushed to a cinematic minimalist language, but the most effective combination of language style of documentary and feature films damaged structure. It’s films like Close-up, A Moment of Innocence … Two movies showing the interaction between documentary reality with fiction movie.
But the biggest thing I want to say here is the ability to inspire creativity can order the materials, through this type of material the students look at the nature of privacy in the first place, is the basis works great after doing this film because the author is also very necessary, individual uniqueness, something that seems lacking cinematic Vietnam. Many filmmakers in the world come from the documentary film short film before long. An interesting example is the Ages Varda, who was hailed as the grandmother of “new wave” of France. She worked from a very young film, starting with the short documentary for the documentary to resonate. Most recently, in 2008, she made the movie “Beaches of Ages”, a documentary narrative poetic virtual learned about life, her film career. All expressed in cinematic language is extremely creative and unusual. I discovered a rich spiritual, thoughtful and innocent pure strange. We are and will forever yearning for the financial period as F.Fellini director, Antonioni, I. Bergman, F.Truffaut … They are bringing the director are the personal stories, personal obsessions projection for the whole world to know, and it has reached the toxic range light, unrepeatable anywhere but also has the greatest impact in the film world.
As film theorist Bill Nichols defines documentary as allowing “therapeutic practice in a creative way.” Hopefully documentary film in general and in particular the documents themselves will bring to our students who sat here, a lot of creativity on what most intimate and homely, then push them up brightly brightly.
