TRACING THE TRUTH WITHIN THE BLURRING BORDERS OF FICTION AND DOCUMENTARY
MetadataShow full item record
Reality seems to be lost its reliability and authenticity within the simulation era where the distinction between the real and unreal is blurred and we have difficulty to find the truth while being surrounded by the mess of hyper-reality. The ‘thing” that we consider as cinema today, is a tangible allegory of life ranging from politics to wars and religions to economy which are all captured by a cinematographic form. It’s increasingly being difficult to perceive for the spectator to make distinction between virtual world and the real one. This paper aims to draw the attentions to this dilemma of modern subject and analyze the films 9/11 (documentary) and Swordfish(fiction) from this point of view.
