The documentary diaries

Alan Rosenthal

Manchester University Press

The chapters details a series of letters exchanged between the author and his friend and Canadian distributor Gary Gladman. The letters mostly deal with Gladman’s responses to Rosenthal’s tentative film proposals, and why Gladman continually advocates the making of a series over the making of a one off documentary. Besides the general discussion the chapter also sets out the pros and cons of working with a professional distributor.
