With the Big Sky Documentary Film Festival coming up, Leora Bar-El explores the documentary genre with director-producers Lindsay Blatt and Samantha Grant. Blatt made “Herd in Iceland,” which examines the culture surrounding the centuries-old tradition of herding horses in Iceland. Grant’s “A Fragile Trust” looks into the story of New York Times “serial plagiarist” Jayson Blair.
The 2014 Big Sky Documentary Film Festival begins Feb. 15 in Missoula and runs for about a week. http://www.bigskyfilmfest.org.
