Headed to Sundance? Interested in the future of documentary? Check out this panel while you are there: Documentarians: Put the Twitter Down and Back Away with Your Hands Up
from the Sundance site:
Documentary filmmakers are using games, 3-D software, data visualization, Twitter, and other unexpected tools as their cameras and, in the process, are turning the art form inside out. The nonfiction stories created by these panelists defy classification and sometimes blur the line between viewer and participant, hero and victim. Moderated by Wendy Levy (Tomorrow Partners) and featuring Nonny de la Peña (Hunger in Los Angeles), Jigar Mehta (18 Days in Egypt), Hank Willis Thomas (Question Bridge: Black Males), Jeremy Mendes (Bear 71), and Mridu Chandra (Himalaya Song).
