Production of a six-hour documentary series tracing the history of the nonfiction film, from the beginnings of cinema to the present.

In six hour-long episodes, TO TELL THE TRUTH will trace the evolution of nonfiction film from the dawn of cinema to the current era. The series will show how documentaries have both shaped and reflected their times and our view of the past. In the process, we will disseminate scholarship from the field of visual studies; educate viewers about the choices behind, and consequences of, on-screen reality; and help expand the audience for substantive documentaries past and present. Above all, TO TELL THE TRUTH will capture a unique cultural history of America.
