The proposal of this project is to deal with the issue of sound in documentary, a subject that still needs development in the literature of cinema and film sound.

Intending thereby to elaborate a panoramic perspective on how the characteristics of the soundtrack in the documentary were being transformed, observing the persistences and changes employed between movements and moments of documentary tradition.
