Hollow: An Interactive Documentary

"Hollow is a web–based documentary and participatory project that examines the future of rural America through the residents of West Virginia's McDowell County. ... the project is also primer for how to make the most of the college experience – Director Elaine McMillion leveraged resources at Emerson College, where she was earning an MFA, to produce Hollow."

Documentaries were always forms of re-presentation

"But as a strategy and a form, the interview–oriented film has problems of its own. ... the film–maker with intertitles, making patently clear what has been implicit all along: documentaries always were forms of re–presentation, never clear windows onto 'reality'; the film–maker was always a participant–witness and an active fabricator of meaning, a producer of cinematic discourse rather than a neautral or all–knowing reporter of the way things truely are."
