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, The Wolfpack, The Square and Capturing the Friedmans, this film brings together a plethora of influential names in the doc space – Sonya Childress, Sam Pollard, Thom Powers, Gordon Quinn, and more – who speak to the ethics of documenting people’s trauma. Essential viewing for any cinephile, Subject is an insightful and satisfying exploration of the role that festivals and audiences play in supporting today’s unprecedented golden era of documentaries.
