I am in the middle of the offline edit of a short documentary film,“Drawing on Topolski”, which will follow the story of a reportage drawing project inspired by the legacy of the Polish émigré artist Feliks Topoloski. This paper will trace the evolution of the film to date, particularly exploring the interdisciplinary relationship between the process of documentary film and reportage illustration, which in its depiction of real life, is surely also a form of documentary.
