Filmschool Podcast

Listened to an interesting interview about a new documentry film.

here is an exerpt

American Cannibal is about the sacrifices we make when reality is re-packaged and sold to us as entertainment. Every TV news story, every documentary film, every reality TV show has been edited within an inch of its life, to grab the audience by its eyeballs. When you produce and direct real life for maximum watchability, the result isn't so much fact but non-fiction. As a culture we've become so good at imitating reality that we'll take the fake version over the real one every time. Lots of people in power would rather deny it, but it's no secret that in the race for popularity, truth comes in second.

Very interesting stuff. To read more about this movie Click Here
