THE OPEN FRAME READER
Edited by Rajiv Mehrotra
The Open Frame Reader is an introductory collection of essays by filmmakers and non-practitioners who seek to unpack the film into its various elements and engage with them. Through a wonderful miscellany of imagery, analogy, allegory and personal musings, the Reader explores cinematography, editing, sound recording, research and the relationships the documentary shares with those who make it and those who view it.
The Reader moves beyond discussions on the technicalities of film making to address issues that concern all those who have an interest in the genre, whether as potential filmmakers or as discerning viewers.
The Reader is a substantially revised, enlarged and updated edition of Double Take edited by The Raqs Media Collective (of Jeebesh Bagchi, Monica Narula and Shuddhabratha Sengupta).
