This article sets out to describe the conceptual evolution of a feature-length documentary film from the first few words on paper through to a finished 35mm print. Central to the development of the project is a recognition that this film is an evocation of a world and in particular a very personal world of the author. Placing the film within a critical, historical context, there is an exploration of precedents to this idiom of practice documentary which interrogates the boundaries between its own supposed and assumed objectivity, and the subjective view of the personal, what one might term poetic film.
