the art and craft of documentary editing.

Often under recognized, the documentary film editor is a key creative collaborator who is responsible for shaping story, structure and emotion from unscripted life. Historically, this is also an area where women have thrived in film, making invaluable contributions to some of the most acclaimed films in the canon, from Man with a Movie Camera (Elizaveta Svilova) and Gimme Shelter (Charlotte Zwerin) to countless others.

To celebrate this rich history, “Editing Life” will take us inside the cutting rooms of some of the most accomplished and dynamic editors working in the field today. They will share short clips from their work in order to provide insights into their working processes. Participating editors include Mary Lampson (Harlan County USA, Trouble the Water,) Penelope Falk (Joan Rivers: A Piece of Work, Maidentrip,) Geeta Gandbhir (When the Levees Broke,
By the People: The Election of Barack Obama,) and Lynn True (Summer Pasture, Lumo.)

Moderated by NFVC Board Member and Filmmaker Sarah Christman
Co-presented with BRIC, a Brooklyn Free Speech Media Talk
