Film Fatales: Stranger Than Fiction
February 19 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm
Join us for an intimate conversation about personal storytelling in the documentary space with Film Fatales members Elan Bogarin (306 Hollywood), Judith Helfand (Love & Stuff), Lynne Sachs (Film About a Father Who) and Tiffany Hsiung (Sing Me A Lullaby).This conversation will focus on the unique and nuanced experiences of documentary filmmakers creating films about personal stories. With insight into the ethical and artistic decisions that filmmakers make, we will explore the complex relationship between directors and film participants. Given that each film presents a different set of circumstances, how do filmmakers approach delicate subject matter, building trust and setting boundaries? What are the responsibilities that come with sharing personal histories with the world? How do relationships change throughout the course of a film?
