Art films came into existence when serious filmmakers decided to target their
personal satisfaction rather than the audience's. It soon turned out there were
never enough resources. The outcome? Documentaries. Short and crisp, these are
the expressions of the artist in the filmmakers. Which is why these are rated
so highly by the more serious viewers.
