Martin Doblmeier: Documentary Eye


The medium of film can transport us to imagined places, as well as deepen our awareness and understanding of the world in which we find ourselves. Turning a documentary lens to complex historical figures and events requires an ability to navigate tensions between underlying values and beliefs in a particular historical moment. In the second episode of Intersections, Martin Doblmeier, a social documentarian who has made films for public television for decades, reflects on his work highlighting human values and the people and events that have shaped our lives.
