What is the 'reality' we create and why? Every shot has a point of view... why do we document it? This film explores the way reality is constructed and attempts to articulate the processes that go into establishing the camera's viewpoint as the reality that inevitably translates into the spectator's version of reality, as it exists, out there, waiting to be absorbed, unchanged and unquestioned. The film delves into why and how certain 'truths' are created and legitimised.
