Documentarian Stanley Nelson, one of the most prolific nonfiction filmmakers working today, will take part in a discussion of his work and his process. The acclaimed filmmaker (Jonestown: The Life and Death of Peoples Temple, The Murder of Emmett Till) will showcase samples from his award-winning career. Nelson's career includes a bevy of lauded historical documentaries, and he will share how he's achieved such an impressive body of work. Nelson will also dissect the way he approaches historical documentaries with a fresh and inventive sensibility. From the gripping portrait, The Black Press: Soldiers Without Swords, to the popular music doc, Sweet Honey in the Rock: Raise Your Voice, Nelson's filmography speaks for itself as a glimpse into the sometimes-overlooked aspects of American history.
