    Since their conception, documentaries have strived to broadcast intriguing and captivating stories, pushing the boundaries of cultural norms and comfort zones. In 1972, Albert and David Maysles stumbled upon a fascinating tale of a mother and daughter inhabiting a dilapidated Long Island mansion, Grey Gardens, which later became the title of the film. Lee Radziwill, the sister of former First Lady Jackie Kennedy, approached the filmmakers in hopes of capturing the haunts of her childhood (Sutton, 2014), but the lens quickly shifted from Radziwill to her aunt, Edith “Big Edie” Beale, and cousin, “Little Edie.” The film falls within the participatory mode of documentary, which focuses on, “the interaction between the filmmaker and subject” (Nichols 2010, pg. 31).

The film relies mostly on this type of sound, other than sporadic non-diegetic background music. As a participatory film, the directors control elements of the mise-en-scene, such as the setting, costumes, and figure behavior, to their advantage. In the Maysles…

    gradation from lightest to darkest, which in most case, is white to black. In such scale, the shades white and black represent two contrasting extremes as they parallel the idea of morality, where white is right and black is wrong. However, the complication arises at the area between the white and black: the grey. The grey area possesses no absolute verdict, for one can be both morally right and wrong. Russian realist Anton Chekhov implements such perception as he colours the story with white,…

Dance and music go hand in hand, allowing the music to set a tone for the dance, creating different styles of dance. Dance is likely to have begun as a ritual to appeal to a culture’s worshipped being or included in ones “rite of passage” (Histoy of Dance, n.d.). Evidence has been found in India showing the existence of dance in the form of paintings made in caves…

    The water is transparent, and its colors are not painted by the sky above, but rather the pebbles underneath. Mostly grey, but I have found the rare creamy orange, or even stony green. There is a fallen tree that had crossed the river, the now exposed roots have become home to a family of squirrels. They often brawl by the riverside, but since I cannot tell any of them apart, I cannot often make bets on the outcome. The one time I tried I may have lost, but I am unsure. Perhaps all the woodland…
