This chapter discusses the recent growth in documentary making and examines IFB funding policy for documentaries. It questions the use of the term ‘creative documentary’ and positions Irish documentary making in relation to mainstream/auteur equivalents such as the films of Michael Moore. The focus here is on how documentaries document community, particularly urban working-class community. The chapter also considers issues of gender with a detailed examination of Ken Wardrop’s His & Hers (2009). It finishes with a case study of the art documentaries of Pat Collins.
