A filmmaker takes readers behind the lens in a series of candid interviews with creators of some of the most influential documentaries of our time. Filmmakers, film students, documentary makers for film and television, and lovers of pop culture will hear, in the filmmakers own words, the challenges and triumphs faced in making documentaries.
