To professionals, subjects offer “material,” their stories to be cut and shaped, mediated through our pens and lenses. The voices on this panel, though, are all those of subjects who have appeared in investigative works, unfiltered and unmediated. How and why did they agree to be part of the process, what were their expectations, and how did the filmmaker live up to those expectations? What do they make of the film’s portrayal of them, and its impact on their lives? This is our chance to hear what it’s like for those who entrust us with their stories.
