The Open Frame Reader is an introductory collection of essays by filmmakers as well as non practitioners working on the agends of the documentary genre. It highlights the concerns and issues surrounding the creative and technological processes as well as the institutional frame work within which they operate.

It foes beyond discussing technique, technology and creative construction to address issues such as censorship, copyright, dissmination and distribution.
