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 the 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.
