This paper reflected upon the particular benefits of teaching documentary production to the (mal)content generation, ultimately suggesting that this genre still provides ample opportunity for students to engage with a wide range of social, ethical and philosophical challenges in the process of its production. In this way documentary can be seen to offer a range of tools by which to challenge and engage the 'click-shoot generation' to create genuinely meaningful content, so that they do not just attempt to represent the real world but rather actively engage in its interpretation.
