Live Talk

Sat, Dec 5 at 8:00 pm PST


Bonni Cohen, Ramona S. Diaz, David France, Alexander Nanau, and Jon Shenk are expected for the live talk on December 5 at 8:00 pm PST.


As the press continues to be attacked and stories are buried or overlooked because of the latest Tweet from the news cycle, documentary filmmakers continue to unearth and expose some of the most important issues of our time, often in real time as stories unfold. Join the documentarians and special guests behind some of the most powerful films of 2020 — Athlete A (Bonni Cohen and Jon Shenk), Collective (Alexander Nanau), A Thousand Cuts (Ramona S. Diaz), and Welcome to Chechnya (David France) — to discuss the complexities of reporting and filmmaking, and the people who bring to light the grave injustices of today.
