Why You Should Be Worried About the Future of Documentary

November 22, 2021



It is not so bad, I tell myself, as long as this is the only news we’ll see. There are still so many reasons to be excited that there really isn’t any reason to be scared. In fact, I would argue that most of us don’t need to be scared at all.

The documentary is one of the things that has been making a lot of news lately, and that includes the news that the documentary will be able to get its own Wikipedia page, and that its director-director, Robert Edelman, will be making a series of documentaries about famous people in history. A lot of these documentaries will be about events that are either very recent or very hard to get a grasp on.

Even though documentaries may not have been that big of a deal before, in their heyday, documentary films were actually pretty popular.

In fact, some of the most famous documentaries in history (like the one about the Titanic) were made as a way to make a profit. Back in the early 1900s, documentary films were a huge part of movie attendance for some of the biggest studios in town. Because of the movie studios were small, there was a lot of demand for documentaries.

Today, there are a lot of films that aren't so widely viewed, and many of them have only recently begun to gain traction. There are some that have been around for decades and some that only began to become notable in the past decade-and-a-half. But as more people become familiar with the technology, we expect to see more of them.

So now that we have a few years left to pay attention to, it is important to be aware of the industry that we are in.

There are many reasons that we are now watching more films, and some of them will be the same reasons that we will be watching more films in the future. We can be sure, though, that we are not the only ones to be paying attention. There are many documentaries out there that are either new or that will be released in the near future.

Documentaries have been around for a while and are considered to be the pinnacle of storytelling. Most of the movies we have seen in the past decade have all been documentaries. We expect that documentaries will continue to grow in popularity, maybe even more than they have in the past. As the industry grows, so does the number of documentaries that will be about the future. Whether this is good or bad, we can't really say.


The problem with the documentary genre is that it’s primarily about the past.

For example, in recent years we have films like “The Big Short” and “A Perfect Murder” about the 2008 financial crisis. While they are both documentaries, both are about the present and both are about the future. What they have in common is that they are about the past, but in the past, they were about the present.

On the other hand, documentaries about the future are rare. They rarely focus on what's to come, but they almost always focus on the past. They tell you what happened before, but they don't tell you what's going to happen. For example, The Great Escape is set in the 1940s, but it shows a great deal of what was going on in the world in the 1930s as the Nazi regime began to take over Germany.
