AbstractThe article discusses the use of documentary films in teaching journalism ethics. It mentions the 2009 True/False Film Fest which features nonfiction films, such as the documentary film "Waltz With Bashir," which showed the distinction separating documentary from fictional film. It notes that films presented during the event offer a view of the issues raised by fiction and an opportunity for a filmmaker-as-journalists to consider the ethical choices and ethical dilemmas subjects face.
