This volume reintroduces Peircean ideas within documentary studies. Through the work of three renowned filmmakers - Jon Jost, Johan Van der Keuken, and Rithy Panh - this book attempts to reassert human agency within a global age dominated by skepticism and subservience to a mechanistic military techno-culture.
