The Challenges of Investigative Documentary

docroundWIFV/DOCS IN PROGRESS Documentary Roundtable 

Investigative documentary poses some of the greatest challenges of all of the forms of documentary. It requires an extraordinary attention to analysis and detail, relies on maintaining one's stamina for pursuing the investigation wherever and for however long it takes, and presumes the willingness to accept the risks of speaking truth to power. 

GW Documentary Center Director, Nina Gilden Seavey, will explore "The Challenges of Investigative Documentary" and present clips from her 30-year-in-the-making investigative film, "MY FUGITIVE." 

Seavey will be joined by Katie Townsend, Litigation DIrector, for the Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press.
