Documentary directors wear many hats, from research to writing to fundraising. None perhaps is more crucial, or nuanced, than the role of interviewer, where directors must develop and draw on their relationship with the subject, while simultaneously maintaining an objective perspective on how the story and the film is developing.
Join director/producer/writer Lisa Leeman (One Lucky Elephant; Crazy Wisdom: The Life and Times of Chogyam Trunga), in a conversation with directors Kirby Dick (Outrage, This Film is Not Yet Rated), Ondi Timoner (Dig!, We Live in Public), and Marina Zenovich (Roman Polanski: Wanted and Desired, Who Is Bernard Tapie?) to discuss the art and craft of the successful documentary interview.
