How Far Have We Come?

The following is a short text taken from your book Imagining Reality by Boleslaw Matuszewski.  Matuszewski was a camera operator for the Lumiere’s operations in St. Peresburg, Russia.  He was the first person who seriously considered and then write about the documentary possibilities of cinema.  The following is from a pamphlet he wrote in 1898.

Discussion Starter: Obviously things have changed since Matuszewski wrote this short piece.  Comment upon the positive and negative thoughts that he presents.  Feel free to take this discussion in your own direction and to add your own examples.  If you quote another source you need to cite it!
