- 1 hr 30 min
Claimed to be one of the earliest examples of 'reality TV', Cinema Verite documents a fictionalized American family. The show begins with the film maker discussing the show's possibility with the wife,Pat. The idea is to film the day-to-day events of her family. She is often left home alone to take care of five children, as her husband Bill travels often for business. The crew moves in with the family which starts a downhill slide in the family relationships. Suspecting Bill is cheating on Pat, the director of the show gives her good reasons to believe it also. This interference in the family's private matters upsets the crew. The show goes through the personal family traumas as well as the battles between the film crew capturing it.
