dc.description.abstractThe academic component of this thesis is a critical analysis of the documentary genre of mountain film. Following a broad evaluation of the place of genre within documentary, the thesis examines the history and characteristics of mountain film. I will argue that there is indeed a defined sub-genre of mountain film and that through critical analysis of films made within this genre it is possible to trace the emergence of techniques and modes of engagement peculiar to it. The production of the creative component to the thesis, the film In The Shadow of the Mountain, was informed by this academic component. An understanding of the genre expectations of the audience and a deliberate use of the recognised techniques of mountain film influenced production choices. Similarly, the experience of producing a film within the genre provided a practical basis to the approach taken in the written thesis.
