From Icelandic Horses to Plagiarism: Crafting Documentaries

Standard

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.
