Monday, August 19, 2013 – Washington, DC
A new roundtable event from WIFV [Women in Film & Video] and Docs In Progress Documentary here – ‘This month we will have a discussion on documentaries, featuring a screening of the film CAPTURING REALITY: THE ART OF DOCUMENTARY, by Pepita Ferrari. This film features interviews with many excellent documentary filmmakers, including Werner Herzog, Albert Maysles, Errol Morris, Jessica Yu, Jennifer Baichwal, and Laura Poitras. These filmmakers and many more share their insights into meeting the challenge of making documentary films.’
We will discuss the existential questions of what is (and is not) a documentary, and where ideas come from. We will also hear from these accomplished filmmakers on the relationship of the director and the film subject, and on the art of the interview. Lastly, we will discuss some of the ethical issues of documentary film, including getting access and developing trust.
