In this chapter I recount what I have coined a ‘re/active documentary’ (Wolfe, 2017a) methodological framework. I focus on an affirmative and productive research account that aims to enable ‘a capacity for action’ for those entangled within the pedagogical research event/s. In doing this I utilise Barad’s (2007) theory of agential realism and her concept of intra-action. I investigate what filmic research methods actually do and how methods should be explicitly accounted for in research claims. I ask what data and knowledge is produced through the methods undertaken, and consider slippery accounts of ways reality may become documented as truth data.
