DOCUMENTARY FILM

Consciousness and the Arts

A documentary film is a nonfictional motion picture intended to document some aspect of reality, primarily for the purposes of instruction or maintaining a historical record. Such films were originally shot on film stock—the only medium available—but now includes video and digital productions that can be either direct-to-video, made into a TV show or released for screening in cinemas. “Documentary” has been described as a “filmmaking practice, a cinematic tradition, and mode of audience reception” that is continually evolving and is without clear boundaries.

Featured Documentarist: CHELO ALVAREZ-STEHLE

Journalist, Documentary Filmmaker, New Media Producer

I was born in Spain, studied in several European countries, and studied and worked in Japan for four years before moving to California in 1995.

In 2003, I co founded the Masala Project, an income generation project for survivors of sex trafficking in rural Nepal.

I have lived in L.A. since 1995, where I work and enjoy the invaluable love and support of my husband Mark and our daughter Sangita.

"As I travel to remote corners of the world searching for stories with a soul, I often find them in the shy smiles of those who are most deprived. I am forever in debt to the many people who keep opening their hearts to me. Here you will find some of their stories."

a social impact game.

Produced by Chelo Alvarez-Stehle

SOS_SLAVES online portal integrates a social impact GAME, and a micro-documentary series inspiring audiences to take direct action through an array of web-based civic engagement tools promoting real world volunteerism.

In this album, you can watch the evolution of the game, starting with our first story board, continuing with the visual concept demo we developed at BAVC Producers Institute for New Media Technologies, and our most recent animatic prototype for Episode 1.
