Background[ edit ] In the years leading up to the 16th Street Baptist Church bombing, Birmingham had earned a national reputation as a tense, violent and racially segregated city, in which even tentative racial integration of any form was met with violent resistance.

It suggests that the recent appetite for documentaries might arise from anxieties about access to reliable information about the real.
In a context where more and more information is "classified," officially and unofficially commodified, or subjected to outright falsification, and where the technologies for image-manipulation are increasingly sophisticated, the filmmakers and other image-makers studied here use various rhetorical, generic, and narrative strategies to resist the replacement of reality by images.
