To help us kick off our four-day-long series, we’re thrilled to have award-winning documentary filmmaker, journalist, and esteemed professor Carrie Lozano as our 2020 Doc Stories Keynote speaker. A beloved member of the Bay Area arts community, Lozano recently joined Sundance Institute as Director of its renowned Documentary Film Program. With this presentation and conversation, she will examine the role of artists and storytellers in the midst of great crisis and political division. As we enter a year of transformative change in the US and around the world, Lozano will share her unique perspective on the challenges and opportunities facing the documentary form and filmmakers today, reasserting their role as essential cultural beacons.
