“How do we make documentary that is both political and poetic?”
This is the collection of films Liam Ward’s undergraduates created as part of his studio, Art of Persuasion. By the School of Media and Communication at RMIT, this is a unit about political documentary. We undergraduates explored the ideas and conventions of documentary, seeking to experiment and dissect. This particular collection of films is by students in the Bachelor of Communications streams. This includes but is not limited to the Bachelor of Comms (Media), Bachelor of Comms (Professional Communication) and Bachelor of Comms (Public Relations).
