Documentaries, as testimonies of social reality and as realistic devices, are a source of study and analysis for the sociologist; in fact, visual material is an essential document to understand how every culture represents itself, its alternatives and options. The idea that cinema is a reflection and a continuation of the real world, is at the basis of some important contributions such as those of Pier Paolo Pasolini, who offers a critical interpretation of man and history; the proletariat, the “street boys”, the Roman suburbs, the subhuman condition of life become the privileged contents of a cinema which has learnt the lesson of neorelism, though transfiguring and critically going beyond it. This cinema tends to transpose the direct data of experience in a strongly characterized artistic dimension.
Keywords: Documentary, participant observation, social analysis
