Summary
From cinema v?ʼrit?ʼ pioneers Albert Maysles and Joan Churchill to maverick directors like Errol Morris and Werner Herzog, this program presents the reflections and experiences of some of the documentary world's brightest luminaries. Interviews with 38 directors are combined with over 160 clips from such films as Grey Gardens, The Thin Blue Line, Darwin's Nightmare, Touching the Void, and One Day in September. Each participant describes both the journey of making a film and that of making a life in filmmaking, while addressing a fundamental question: can a documentary capture reality, and what does that look like? Interviewees include those mentioned above as well as Jennifer Baichwal, Alanis Obomsawin, Jennifer Fox, Scott Hicks, Hubert Sauper, Sabiha Sumar, Peter Wintonick, and Jessica Yu
