Journalism is often referred to as the first draft of history, but what draft is documentary film? The Square, Citizenfour, The Kill Team, Invisible War and countless other films have artfully enlightened, engaged, and questioned official narratives. To produce and widely distribute this work, however, filmmakers must straddle the paradox of being outsiders and agitators dependent on mainstream media. Going beyond nuts-and-bolts, this conversation takes a 360-degree view as broadcasters, distributors, presenters, and filmmakers delve into the reality of producing films where accuracy, accountability, and fearlessness are required.
