DCTV Presents: THE LINE BLURS: SHIFTING NARRATIVES IN FILMMAKING
Tuesday, December 10th, 7:30pm


Frederick Wiseman said that “One works from social actuality but necessarily imposes form upon that actuality, turning it into what may be implied by the terms art of fiction." 

With the words "documentary" and "narrative" becoming increasingly benign, and fairly young genres such as "docu-fiction" and "hybrid documentary" becoming increasingly exhausted, this panel discussion tackles the question of whether the division between "documentary" and "narrative" has ever actually existed and why films continue to be shoved into these critic-friendly categories, featuring a who's who from both sides of the genre scale:

Josephine Decker (Butter on the Latch)
Keith Miller  (Welcome to Pine Hill)
Lynne Sachs (Your Day Is My Night)
Caveh Zahedi (I Am A Sex Addict)
Moderated by Nathan Silver (Exit Elena)
