Visiting Canadian director Pepita Ferrari will present a special screening of her absorbing documentary about documentaries, Capturing Reality, which investigates the genre through encounters with some of its most influential practitioners. More than 30 filmmakers, including Albert Maysles, Errol Morris, Nick Broomfield, Joan Churchill, Kim Longinotto, Scott Hicks, Kevin Macdonald, Heddy Honigman, Peter Wintonick, Patricio Guzmán and Werner Herzog, discuss the art and ethics of their craft, while over 100 clips from important films illustrate their reflections on the nature of representing reality. Capturing Reality is a fascinating look at the nonfiction filmmaker's universe.
Pepita Ferrari's presentation is made possible by the support of the National Film Board of Canada.
Two free tickets will be awarded to the event in San Rafael on September 30th to the first two email respondents.
