My Dissertation piece ‘ONCE APON A DREAM : THE UNCANNY, CATHARSIS AND FANTASY. THE SUBCONSCIOUS TRUTHS OF DISNEYLAND’s. A study of artificial immersive environments Disneyland and Las Vegas as (commercially biased) non fiction narrative experiences. The study outlined a discussion between a reading of these spaces and forms of ‘hyperreality’ or ‘unreality’ in Documentary Cinema, with reference to Psychoanalysis, Art Theory, and Philosophy of Media and Image. I made an argument for a definition of documentary that would include spaces such as Las Vegas and other immersive spaces, designed to convey specific narratives of history or reality
