Spring 2024

This print issue of Documentary comes right before IDA’s biennial industry conference, Getting Real. In the tradition of past magazine issues that immediately precede the conference, this issue previews the conference’s themes of “Strategy, Networks, Access” through interviews with speakers whose work will be featured at the conference. At this point, however, I should show my hand. I’m not only the editor of this publication but also the conference director of Getting Real. These pieces illustrate the heterogeneous and earnest quality of the dialogue we hope to model at the conference—and model the actions we hope these conversations will inspire toward a more just and distributed documentary ecosystem.Articles featured in the print version will be published online throughout April-June, 2024.

Doc of the Week


Everest Dark

World-renowned Nepalese mountaineer Mingma Tsiri Sherpa had sworn off summiting again after the devastating 2015 earthquake that killed 22 climbers. Yet after the death count increased by 11 in 2019, he decided that something must be done to appease Sagarmatha, the angered god of the mountain. EVEREST DARK takes its viewers on a deeply spiritual and high-risk expedition with Mingma, as he and his team attempt to recover the bodies of fallen climbers and return them to their families.
