Unpacking the ethics and responsibility inherent in documentary filmmaking, this powerful rallying cry for the film industry puts some of most successful documentaries of the past three decades under the microscope, revealing the impact their commercial success has had on the lives of the onscreen participants.

Focusing on the present day ‘stars’ of The Staircase, Hoop Dreams and The Wolfpack, as well as The Square and Capturing the Friedmans, this film brings together a plethora of influential names in documentaries — Sonya Childress, Sam Pollard, Thom Powers, Gordon Quinn and more — who discuss the ethics of documenting people’s trauma.

Followed by a Q&A with co-directors Camilla Hall and Jennifer Tiexiera, and Margie Ratliff (a participant/subject of The Staircase).
