Keywords: documentary, spectator, spectacle.

Abstract

Result of the last 15 years thinking of the teacher, critic and documentary filmmaker Jean-Loius Comolli, the collection Ver e poder provides a instigating way to understand the arrangements that occur between various audiovisual materials - fiction films, documentaries, reality shows, television journalism -, and their producers. In discussing the place of the spectator and the actions of the spectacle, Comolli invites the reader to undertake a new system of belief, in which we must believe, but while doubt to understand the cinema as an art policy in potential.
