At this year’s True/False Film Festival, a panel of notable critics were gathered to discuss nonfiction filmmaking and the state of its reception in contemporary movie writing. The conversation was moderated by director Robert Greene (Fake It So Real) and features panel guests Miriam Bale, Eric Hynes, Vadim Rizov, and Ignatiy Vishnevetsky—all of whom contribute insightful commentary on the topic at hand. They talk at length about the current standing of documentaries in film criticism, ruminating on notions of form (formula/convention, narrative/storytelling, etc.) and content (“issue” docs, urgency of subject matter, education/learning from these works, etc.) while also explicating the need for a more thoughtful critical language to explore the ever-present art of nonfiction cinema.
