The Observational Lens

Hear from a collection of filmmakers embracing realism about the possibilities and challenges of observational filmmaking. When done masterfully, the observational mode allows for a unique intimacy with the subjects and a rich world building experience. This panel will consider the ethical implications of the fly-on-the-wall camera, explore the process for crafting a narrative without narration, and argue for the preservation of the art of observing.

TThis panel will be hosted by Luke W. Moody and speakers include Laura Coppens (Taste of Hope), Sebastian Brameshuber (Movements of a Nearby Mountain) and Alice Riff (Elections).
