(p.144) 8. The Memories of Belleville Baby: Autofiction as Evidence
Female Authorship and the Documentary Image

Boel Ulfsdotter

Edinburgh University Press

The essay studies the impact of autofiction and memory on the requirement that documentary filmmaking is an evidence based practice. Using Mia Engberg’s film Belleville Baby as an example, the author discusses how the film’s narrative and visual form are affected by the ambivalence injected through the use of autofictive references and diary based memories. The author concludes that this is an ultimate example of (female) documentary authorship.
