Martha Shane is an award-winning filmmaker. Her directorial debut, the feature documentary After Tiller, premiered at Sundance 2013, was nominated for an Independent Spirit Award for Best Documentary, and will broadcast on PBS’s POV series on September 1. She is currently working on two new documentaries.
Recorded at a live event at DCTV, the latest episode of the Talkhouse Film podcast features Tracy Droz Tragos, one of the directors of Sundance Grand Jury Prize-winning documentary Rich Hill (now on general release), in conversation with After Tiller‘s Martha Shane. The two talk about the more personal aspects of non-fiction filmmaking, such as the art of co-directing (with your cousin!), building trust with subjects and how relationships shift after production has ended.
