    In 2012 I was in New York doing a job for which I had to interview Albert Maysles (1926-2015)

    I knew about his work with his brother David and their great reputation, but I had never seen a whole film. So before meeting him, I woke up at 5am to watch GREY GARDENS… What a shock... I realized that many directors I like have simply stolen from the Maysles. As I entered Mr. Maysles' office I felt as if I was finally meeting my grandfather.

    This gentleman was filled to the brim with wisdom and was kind enough to talk to us about what makes a documentary interesting and about one of his last projects, "In transit".

    Do yourself a favor and check out his work.
