Example sentence(s):
  • Det var stor bredde innholdsmessig så vel som når det gjaldt formløsninger på de innsendte filmene. Den personlige dokumentaren står stadig sterkt. På sitt beste gir den gripende innblikk i enkeltskjebner, men kan også ende som selvsentrert dokumen
  • Among the submissions there was a wide range in terms of both content and formal style. The personal documentary still holds a strong position. At its best it allows for a stirring glimpse into individual destinies, but can also end up as self-absorbed do

Notes to answerer
Asker: Thank you for your response. This was a good suggestion, but for this particular translation I ended up going with "unique characters" which somebody else suggested. It just sounded more natural and I think catches most of the meaning well enough.
