Out of the Echo Chamber


Since Donald Trump’s stunning win in the 2016 presidential election, many in the documentary field are asking the same question: Are nonfiction filmmakers, and the profession in general, out of touch with a huge swath of fellow Americans, and if so, where do we go from here?

Panelists include: Katy Chevigny (E-Team, Deadline), Marshall Curry (If a Tree Falls: A Story of the Earth Liberation Front, Street Fight), and Cynthia Hill (Private Violence, The Guestworker), and Farihah Zaman (Field of Vision). Moderated by: Deirdre Haj (Full Frame Festival Director).
