Documentary film is commonly discussed in the context of investigative journalism—uncovering information, exposing injustice and corruption, and reinforcing public accountability. But what compels filmmakers to bring certain stories to light? How do they balance journalistic rigor with artful storytelling? What room is left for ambiguity, for advocacy? What legal protections are they afforded? Join Laura Poitras (Citizenfour, The Oath), Alex Gibney (Going Clear, Taxi to the Dark Side), and Marc Silver (3 1/2 MINUTES, Who is Dayani Crystal?).

While this information is limited and doesn't necessarily represent the full list of participants (e.g. actors and crew), it is the list given to us by the main film/play/project contact at the time, based on the space restrictions of our publications. Each entry in the Online Archives is meant as a historical record of a particular film, play, or project at the time of its involvement with Sundance Institute. For this reason, we can only amend an entry if a name is misspelled, or if the entry does not correctly reflect the original publication.
