A Conversation with Jon Alpert, 2015

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Due to popular demand, Jon Alpert, the legendary documentary filmmaker, will return to this year's BEA Convention. Alpert, a fifteen-time National Emmy Award winner and two-time Academy Award nominee, will speak about the responsibility of filmmakers as well as ethics in filmmaking.  Through producing his highly acclaimed documentaries for over forty years, Alpert understands that documenting particular individuals can be thought of as exploitation. What are the responsibilities that we must be aware of when filming particular individuals?

What is acceptable when documenting someone else’s life? How do we assess what is the realm of journalism and what is not?  This is an excellent opportunity to “meet” the celebrated filmmaker who pioneered video journalism decades ago, and is still very much active today.
