Kansas City Old School Reality TV Examined
Just a few moments ago, a moviemaker shared this clip of old school domestic drama a fascinating bit of Kansas City ethnography that's worth a look . . .
Description . . .
"Although this was filmed years ago, what law enforcement folks do on a daily basis has not changed. What is different is that the documentary filmmakers recording this seemed to be unnoticed by the people in front of the camera. They just didn't care at that time. And the police gave filmmakers the opportunity to follow along–way before reality television recorded thousands of these experiences. As I look at this again, there is something very real about what is being captured here. No theatrics for the camera etc."
