WHY WE WRITE
ROUNDTABLE ON DOCUMENTARY CRITICISM HOSTED BY ERIC HYNES
Hosted by film critic and curator Eric Hynes, with a participation of an Editor David Jenkins, (Little White Lies), a Production Editor Isabel Stevens (Sight & Sound) and a film critic Simran Hans this roundtable will include different perspectives on the role of documentary criticism, from considerations of nonfiction artistry and filmmaking practices to the role of film in challenging and shaping society. What is the current status of documentary criticism in the wider field? What stories get published? Whose voices get published and read? Critics and editors weigh in, exploring why, how, and the varied ways in which they write.
