Put a frame around someone, and that person becomes an image.
Bring that image into the editing room, and it becomes a character.
Present that character on the screen, and... who or what does the audience see?
This month we look at four short films that brought people through that process:
- No Place But Home, about an icon of local filmmaking
- It Got Better, about the private life of a celebrity
- Dealing with the Truth, about a “dishonest” car dealer
- The John Show, about an ordinary fellow who got a LOT of attention
Within the category of documentaries called the profile film or character study, we’ll examine if it’s possible for a film to stay true to the person it portrays.
Filmmakers from all four films—Ryan Loew & Matthew Newton, Doree Simon, Will Zavala, and Julie Sokolow--will be in attendance.
Supported in part by a Seed Award from The Sprout Fund.
