When the Lion Learns to Speak: Representation & Agency in Documentary

As the field of impact extends the life and reach of documentary films, it also reshapes and complicates the relationship between filmmaker and film subject. Increasingly filmmakers and film subjects spend months traveling together speaking to issues related to the film, the filmmaking process, and the power dynamic between storyteller and subject. How do filmmakers and film subjects navigate the murky waters of race and class, access and commerce, representation and agency?
We will hear from three filmmaker / film subject teams who have faced these issues directly, engaged in difficult conversations and experimented with new models for filmmaker / subject dynamics and collaboration.
Filmmaker/subject teams are:

  • Jack Pettibone Riccobono / Rob Brown (The Seventh Fire)
  • Stanley Nelson / Mohammad Mubarak (The Black Panthers: Vanguard of the Revolution)
  • Deb Esquenazi / Anna Vasquez (Southwest of Salem: The Story of the San Antonio Four)
  • Steve James / Ameena Matthews (The Interrupters)
