 No Direction Home: Looking Forward from Don't Look Back
Pennebaker was a pioneer of the direct cinema documentary movement in the early 1960s, which sought to use the new technology of handheld, mobile cameras and synchronous sound to film in a strictly observational, spontaneous style.
From a contemporary vantage point, direct cinema is most likely to be branded a “codified and puritanical” (6) movement, obsessively striving for a return to the real through a series of rules prohibiting the use of interviews, re-enactments, rehearsals, direction of subjects, artificial lighting, voice-over commentary or narration and extra-diegetic music.
Early direct cinema documentaries were made for television broadcast, and television finance helped to bankroll research into and development of technological solutions to the problem of the intrusive, noisy and cumbersome camera and sound-recording equipment which had restricted mobility in previous documentary production.

 ciando eBooks - New Documentary
The preceding chapter discussed the problems of this legacy with reference largely to popular film practice, whereas the new journey documentaries, to be examined here, signal the influence of direct cinema uponmore intellectual and relatively elitist documentary filmmaking.
Many journey documentaries borrow from both observational traditions: the close attention to detail and personality of direct cinema and the focus upon the moment of encounter with the filmmaker of cinéma vérité.
Direct cinema was founded upon an uncomfortable paradox, that whilst the films were putatively concerned with the unpredictable action not dictated by the filmmakers, they also desired and sought ways of imposing closure on their ostensibly undetermined action.

Thus, Direct Cinema is not pure documentary; due to the style of shooting and the use of "real" people and events it is not true fiction either.

Direct Cinema was trying to re-define what films were used for and how films would be seen.

 DS / D.N. Rodowick: 'TOWARDS A MINOR CINEMA'
In its staging of a model of the true, political cinema in the classical period was based on the assumption that this ideal collectivity actually existed outside of its construction in images, and that it conformed or could conform to the ideals those images presented.
From approximately 1939 to 1960, the history of African cinema is fundamentally a history of technological and cultural domination by the British and Belgian colonizers.
In African cinema, the oral tradition is recovered as a "usable" past which the narrative image draws upon to invent a future--the creation of a people as a national becoming.

 The Direct Cinema of David and Albert Maysles | Vogels
Their collaboration from 1962 until David’s death in 1987 wrought thirteen major works in which the brothers critiqued the concept of celebrity with unglamorous footage of iconic figures, explored how commercialism hinders communication, and questioned the possibility of seeing anything clearly in a world abounding with both real and constructed images.
They are mentioned in many historical surveys of documentary film, but The Direct Cinema of David and Albert Maysles is the first full-length treatment of their career.
In addition to describing the changes in technology that made direct cinema possible, Vogels provides careful, scene-by-scene analyses that allow for a consideration of the Maysles brothers’ films as films, a tactic not frequently employed in nonfiction film studies.

Drew is generally considered the father of the direct cinema style, a form he helped pioneer as the founder of film group Drew Associates.
Drew began his career as a journalist for LIFE magazine, but turned to filmmaking in the late 1950s when he came to the conclusion that lightweight 16mm cameras with synchronized sound would be much more adept at capturing breaking news events than the lead-heavy tripod monsters in use at the time.

 Thomas Waugh   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-03)
Direct cinema emerged (by no accident?) at almost exactly the same historical conjuncture as what has come to be known as the Sexual Revolution.
But one would never know as much from looking at the first generation of the new documentary of the postwar period (1956 to 1970).
I shall attempt not only to decipher these films' confrontation with the Sexual Revolution, whether oblique and muted or direct and ecstatic, but also to historicize the intersection of the revolution in documentary technology and aesthetics with the revolution in sexuality that formed its societal backdrop.

 Cinéma vérité   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-03)
Robert Flaherty's Nanook of the North (1922) is also often seen as an ancestor to cinéma vérité, in that it was a partially scripted film that used the techniques of documentary filmmaking.
The aesthetic of the movement, which began in the 1950s and flourished in the 1960s was essentially the same as that of the mid-1950s "free cinema" in the UK and the "direct cinema" movement in the United States and Quebec (where it is called "cinéma direct").
Borrowing techniques from documentary film (but eschewing the use of voiceovers) cinéma vérite aims for an extreme naturalism, using non-professional actors, nonintrusive filming techniques, frequent use of hand-held camera, the use of genuine locations rather than sound stages, and naturalistic sound without post-production.

It was not a radical break, he argued, but the inflexion of a curve, a tactical shift rather than a reversal in the deployment of sexuality that had been intensifying in Western culture since the 18th century and incidentally in the cinema as well since its invention at the turn of the 20th century.
Yes, it was only an inflexion but let's not forget at the same time the perceptions of filmmakers, audiences and critics who lived during the baby-boomer era, who experienced what felt like a monumental dislocation, both in the social field and the cinematic one.
On the one hand is the Pill, and on the other hand the Nagra, or in general the 16mm sync-sound portable documentary technology that made possible the new documentary aesthetic of direct cinema (or cinema-verite, as North American anglophones usually called it, thinking they were being hip and French).

What emerged was the portrait of a powerful and complex relationship of love, dependence, and resentment between two strong willed and rather eccentric women, each determined to tell her story.
The film elicited strong responses, from those who hailed it as a masterpiece of direct cinema filmmaking to those who skewered the Maysles for allegedly exploiting two women who did not have the mental capacity to know what they were getting into.
What made the film even more sensational was the fact that the women, Edith Bouvier Beale and her daughter "Little Edie," were the aunt and first cousin of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis.
