#67 - Zealous Search for Truth in Documentary Filmmaking: A Dialogue with Nadia Gill

Converging Dialogues

In this episode, Xavier Bonilla has a dialogue with Nadia Gill concerning truth, persuasion, and culture in documentary filmmaking. They talk about her background and shift from law to documentary filmmaking. They discuss the importance of telling the truth in documentaries and whether persuasion or propaganda is implicating in some documentaries. They also talk about showing a perspective vs. describing objective truth about reality in documentaries. They ponder if the responsibility for truth lies with the filmmaker or with the viewer, who gets to tell what stories, and many other topics.  Nadia Gill is a former lawyer, producer and documentary filmmaker. Her and her husband, Dominic Gill, started Encompass Films as a way to tell stories about adventure and the outdoors from a wide range of people and cultures. They have recently branched out into conservation and some political polarization. They have done work for clients such as Red Bull, Microsoft, Hendrick's Gin, and many others. Twitter: @egypxican

35: Making Movies in an Era of Creative Gatekeeping, with Nadia Gill

Where We Go Next

Should a storyteller's identity define what stories they're allowed to tell? Does our sex, race, or sexuality set the boundaries around either the fictions we can dream up or the nonfictions we investigate and explore? Filmmaker Nadia Gill is speaking out against a worrying trend within her industry that suggests storytelling might be better off if we all simply kept to "our own."Encompass FilmsSoul Deep, by Encompass FilmsClimbing Out of Disaster, by Encompass FilmsLast Call For The Bayou, by Encompass FilmsWho Are you to Tell That Story?, by Nadia Gill"Decolonize" the Documentary?, by Nadia GillBabies - TrailerCartel Land - TrailerWhores' Glory - TrailerThe Act of Killing - TrailerCutie and the Boxer - TrailerDonald Trump Made Inroads in South Texas This Year.
