RIPU: Bibliography

During the RIPU module, I have been considering documentary filmmaking  as my main topic of research. I hope to use the module to further understand the craft of making documentaries and to see how that relates to or affects my own career aspirations. The things listed below are the most useful books, films, articles, magazines, and any other media I have found to study. More information on each will be presented in the physical copy of my Research File.
