dc.description.abstractDr. B. is a 40-minute portrait film that reflects on the documentary process by focusing on the life of Juan Blechen (the Dr.), a charming 72-year-old Mexican-American, self-appointed warrior who idealizes indigenous Mexican cultures. The film crews interactions with the Dr. put on display the anatomy of toxic masculinities present in Mexican culture. The film offers a dynamic familiar to the non-fiction filmmaking process where subject and filmmaker struggle/clash to gain control over how the character is being seen and will be seen; on how the identity of the subject is self-created, perceived by others and then captured by camera and microphone to be used in an audiovisual product ultimately consumed by an audience.
