In this series, we sit down with the filmmakers and featured participants from "Always in Season", "Decade of Fire", and "Mossville: When Great Trees Fall" to ask who gets to tell whose story in documentary filmmaking.
Series Premiere: September 6, 2019 online at storyshift.net and at the Southern Documentary Fund Artist Convening in Durham, NC.
StoryShift aims to dismantle extractive filmmaking models that have been the standard for the documentary industry since its inception. By interviewing leaders in accountable storytelling, this series works toward envisioning what truly accountable and authentic processes look like and how they can be put into practice in order to decolonize the documentary industry.
StoryShift is a project of Working Films in collaboration with artists, creators, and advisors working in the accountable storytelling space.
