Our Special Issue 12.2 ‘Documentary Film Mutations: New Opportunities for Social Change’ is now online. This brand new issue is an exquisit selection of the latest trends in the field of i-docs and its different degrees of interaction and immersion, breaking the boundaries of the conventional screen. Topics as diverse as immigrant communities in the US, 360º immersive experiences for youth, health and empowerment for women, makes this a highly committed issue that goes way beyond the technical aspects of interactive documentary film.
I would like to thank Dr. Fernando Canet from the Universitat Politècnica de València, and his co-editors Stefano Odorico and Xosé Soengas for their hard work on this issue, which is the first of its kind in this journal.
