The return in the documentary gaze The documentary view has been defined in many ways over the years. We return to it to see precisely how it can be directed towards the same reality more than once. The subject of the documentary is a place to return. Sometimes to film what we saw before, others to film again what we had already recorded. Sometimes this “look again” will be printed in the film, others will be a secret gesture, which will remain in its substratum. The repetition, moreover, takes diverse forms within our cinema: it has to do with the citations to previous looks, own and others; Also has to do with internal echoes, basis for the construction of sense or assembly; It also refers to the accumulation in the era of accumulation, films-collage, films-mantra, films made of fragments and flashes … And in all (these and others), the repetition, back, will always be found In the very essence of our look: Be that as it may, to look is somehow to look again, to look twice. Look to see, look to see. And this does not end here: as a result the film will always put us in front of “the real and its double”, using a Rosset expression. Yes, we could understand the documentary image as what it “repeats”, which duplicates reality. But maybe that’s not really accurate. Maybe another twist would still be missing, one more …
