2023 AIFF Doc Showcase: Subject
(NR) - 1 hr. 37 min.
A fascinating exploration of the life-altering experience of sharing one's life on screen through key participants of four acclaimed documentaries: The Staircase, Hoop Dreams, The Wolfpack, Capturing the Friedmans, and The Square. These erstwhile documentary “stars” reveal the highs and lows of their experiences as well as the everyday realities of having their lives put under a microscope. As tens of millions of people consume documentaries in an unprecedented "golden era," Subject urges audiences to consider the ethics and responsibility inherent in documentary filmmaking and the often profound impact on their participants.
