Building Trust in Documentaries
September 25 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Join Film Fatales for a discussion about Building Trust in Documentaries with Film Fatales members Lauren Greenfield (The Kingmaker), Yoruba Richen (The Killing of Breonna Taylor), Valerie Red-Horse (Mankiller), Yu Gu (A Woman’s Work) and Erika Cohn (Belly of the Beast). This conversation will focus on the unique and nuanced relationships that filmmakers have with documentary film participants. With insight into the ethical and artistic decisions filmmakers make, we will explore the challenges and complexities of the director/film participant relationship. Given that each film presents a different set of circumstances, how do filmmakers approach transparency, building trust and boundaries? How do relationships change throughout the course of a film?
