Stranger with a Camera Trailer (2000)
Trailer for the documentary Stranger with a Camera.
Like photographers, documentary makers think of the world as raw material to which they're entitled, but sometimes a subject steps forward and objects, in this case firing a fatal shot into prominent Canadian filmmaker Hugh O'Connor in 1967 while he was producing a report on life in rural eastern Kentucky. Local landowner Hobart Ison had gotten fed up with media outsiders portraying Kentucky as rundown and impoverished. From this sad incident long ago, Appalachian documentary maker Elizabeth Barret fashions a brilliant and moving inquiry into documentary ethics, "the difference between how people see their own place and how others represent it."
