Chaired by Olivia O’Leary.
What is the documentary maker’s responsibility to their subject? When does a personal story become a public story? How does one protect one’s sources?
Chaired by Olivia O’Leary, this session will explore the relationship between the filmmaker and their subject through screenings and discussion. Panellists include documentary makers and journalists Christopher Hird (Dartmouth Films), Janet Traynor (Primetime Investigates), and Colin Murphy, filmmaker/writer of The Guaranteed.
