The introduction establishes the book’s fundamental themes, beginning with the cultural and technological shifts over the past two hundred years that have created a hospitable media climate for recording and displaying death in the digital age. It explores death’s suitability for the moving image medium as a process of duration and change, asserts the book’s intention to help fill a gap in documentary-specific digital media scholarship, and starts to disentangle the ethics of recording actual death—and of viewing or even writing about such recordings. Finally, the book’s theoretical influences—especially André Bazin and Vivian Sobchack—are highlighted and the structure of its chapters is previewed.
