Documenting the nation: documentaries as discursive nation-building tools.
My research project focuses on the nation-building process in Russia as presented in-and affected by-documentary films. It addresses documentaries as an authoritative source of information that creates a new reality and that affects state policy. To study modern teledokumentalistika, I explore the documentaries through film analysis, focus groups and interviews.
