Dear All -
I am compiling a list of personal documentaries or any other films or
videos of an
autobiographical nature - from the most superficial/ banal to the most
confessional. Any genre, from (self) promotional/ corporate through to
"experimental". If you are able to supply a short synopsis and/ or
provide any details
re distributors or accessibility through libraries etc. I would be most
Also - any journals which may have devoted issues to this type of film
and /or
curated seasons, festivals.
With thanks,
