MetaRealism in cinema is realism that allows abstract interpretations of the reality it shows.

They provide a glimpse into others’ lives & refuse to flinch.
They provide a resource with the arts & sciences on record.
They catalog the world. Our progress. Our discoveries.

It is any film that blends fiction with nonfiction.
Or offers subjective nonfiction to the public.

Antonio Gaudí is proof that cinema can be a civil service, documenting an artists’ worldwide ouevre;
allowing others to see works around the planet they otherwise would’nt’ve seen.

Films such as Close-Up and A Little Stiff offer stunning portraits of actual events through re-enactments with the original settings & characters.

MetaRealism documentaries are genuine philanthrophy.

The films of Jean Painlevé & David LeBrun’s Proteus provide a civil service of documenting the sciences.
Stan Brakhage has certain works in his ouevre that are artistic acts of chronicling process of the human body.
Louis Malle & Allan King both provided a civil service by documenting humans of the 20th century so that we may learn from their lives.
These films provided people with documentation of historical art, science & psychology in-&-of daily life.

The filmed documents created by Charles & Ray Eames are a testament of charity, entertaining & educating society with science.

MetaRealism documentaries offer a postmodern reaction from a modernist perspective.

They are cinematic gems. Worlds of their own.
