dc.description.abstract William Greaves?s Symbiopsychotaxiplasm: Take One (1968) was a groundbreaking film that utilized recent revolutionary sync-sound technology to address issues of discrimination. For this oral presentation I will be critiquing the film and its methods. Greaves's intention, was to capture a vision of human flaws in hopes of engaging audiences to think critically about social interactions. The focus of the film captured the director and crew members acting poorly to one another in between takes of a failed film shoot. By leaving the lines between what is scripted and what is real, Greaves casted a complex understanding of cultural discrimination of the late 1960's. Greaves chose to create a film that embraced flaws of documentary filmmaking, and its preconceived notion of always displaying truth. With this, Greaves was able to manipulate the documentary genre in a such a way that had rarely been seen before in the world of filmmaking.
