DOCumentaries in DOCommunities – Let’s Work Together!
MODERATOR: Caryn Capotosto
PANELISTS: Eric Richter, Ruth Leitman, Dan Rybicky
This panel will focus on how docs can be used to bring people together and/or create communities linked by their subjects.
One of the most powerful aspects of dcumentaries is that they are often windows into communities other than our own. At their best, documentaries also create openings to dialogue outside of the film and encourage viewers to engage more actively in the world around them. In a variety of ways, all of the filmmakers on this panel have explored the idea of community both through the subjects of their films and by working to build new communities beyond it.
