"The modern world needs people with a complex identity who are intellectually autonomous and prepared to cope with uncertainty; who are able to tolerate ambiguity and not be driven by fear into a rigid, single-solution approach to problems, who are rational, foresightful and who look for facts; who can draw inferences and can control their behavior in the light of foreseen consequences, who are altruistic and enjoy doing for others, and who understand social forces and trends."
Robert J. Havighurst, 1972

Der Ethnografe Jean Rouch entwickelte in den 50er Jahren die Methode der Dokufiktion in der visuellen Anthropologie um das Publikum mit der Frage der dokumentarischen Wahrhaftigkeit zu konfrontieren.
Inwiefern ist das, was wir dokumentieren tatsächlich wirklich und wahrhaftig und woran glauben wir wenn wir Dokumente in einem offiziellen und institutionellen Kontext vorgetragen bekommen.
