This article was talking about why audience are not interested in documentaries.
The opinion of the author is that Most documentaries claim to be simply recording reality. however, the author claims that For me the point of making films is not to convey objective information about the world, but to show it as I see it and to find a form which is relevant.
Choice the subject is crucial for film making. But for the author is not just see what he see through its eyes. This is definitely true because when you making a film, we need to be professional whatever you shot, and most important thing is that the film need to be spiritual yourself and then it can be spiritual audiences.
the other ironic thing is that the future of the documentary it doesn’t look good because nowadays the documentary needs TV for its survival and yet it is TV that is killing the documentary, I think this is true, most of audience,like me, I watching TV don’t really think documentaries as films,I think it is just shooting the real thing .The form of documentary its look people with no time for film-making. we all like to watch novel or fiction film, the situation is true, we can see most of the very successful movie is Hollywood sci-fi movies, this is a trend, and may be this is a reason why the TV want to kill the documentary, because TV industry need to use less and less money to appeal the audience attention. Unfortunately, the documentary is not the one which can appeal audience’s attention.
