Thesis Title: A poetic approach to documentary: discomfort of form, rhetorical strategies and aesthetic experience
The main question Bettina is addressing is:

They shift; become other; emphasise experience; draw attention to the subjectivity of creator, participant and responder; deal with complex notions of truth and attempt to connect across difference.
