Role of the (movie) camera: truthful cinema?

A montage of sound and image - sound from CineMatic Orchestra and image from Dziga Vertov's 1929 film, an attempt to capture cinéma vérité.
"It is far from simple to show the truth, yet the truth is simple." Dziga Vertov

Am exploring the inter-web for the role and "eye" of (through? behind? with?) the camera through video and photography as a sideline to the project and our use of video scenario recordings. It has been a contested notion ever since film come into being!
Will explore more then synthesise later. :o)
