Synopsis
From cinema-verite pioneers Albert Maysles and Joan Churchill to maverick moviemakers like Errol Morris, Werner Herzog and Nick Broomfield, some of the doc world's brightest lights reflect upon the unique power of the genre in CAPTURING REALITY: THE ART OF DOCUMENTARY.

Featuring intimate interviews with 38 directors and 163 film clips from classics such as Grey Gardens and The Thin Blue Line, as well as arresting recent work such as Darwin's Nightmare, Touching the Void and One Day in September, Capturing Reality offers insight into myriad aspects of the complex creative process. Deftly charting the documentarian's journey, director Pepita Ferrari fashions this kaleidoscopic mix into her own engaging narrative, while probing the perennially contested status of the 'truth.' Can film capture reality?

Featuring 38 Legendary Filmmakers including: WERNER HERZOG, ERROL MORRIS, KEVIN MACDONALD, HEDDY HONIGMANN, NICK BROOMFIELD, ALBERT MAYSLES, PATRICIO GUZMAN, LAURA POITRAS, JENNIFER BAICHWAL, JOAN CHURCHILL, ALANIS OBOMSAWIN, JENNIFER FOX, SCOTT HICKS, HUBERT SAUPER, SABIHA SUMAR, PETER WINTONICK, JESSICA YU and many more!
