Co-creators: Laura Poitras, Charlotte Cook & AJ Schnack

Website | Facebook Event

Special co-presentation with the MIT Open Documentary Lab

Charlotte Cook will attend in person for Q&A with Sarah Wolozin, Director of the MIT Open Documentary Lab.

Launched in the fall of 2015, Field of Vision is a filmmaker-driven visual journalism film unit co-created by Laura Poitras (CITIZEN FOUR), AJ Schnack (CAUCUS) and Charlotte Cook (former Programming Director for Hot Docs) that pairs filmmakers with developing and ongoing stories around the globe. The mission of the Field of Vision unit is to combine artistic approaches to filmmaking with bold, investigative journalism. Inspired by Life Magazine and World in Action, the shorts and series emerging from FoV are being created by some of the top talent and most exciting new voices in non-fiction like Kirsten Johnson, Michael Palmieri & Donal Mosher, and Kelly Duane de la Vega & Katie Galloway. The visual documentary arm of The Intercept, Field of Vision is changing the paradigm for the creation and consumption of “news.”

About The DocYard:

For decades, Boston has been a center for documentary filmmaking. It is a place where students come to learn and experiment, where some of documentary’s giants are teaching and creating new work, and where the craft is continuously nurtured and expanded. Today’s filmmakers are breaking new ground that has its foundation, more often than not, in Boston’s rich documentary legacy.

Celebrating what is innovative, interesting, and inspiring in documentary, The DocYard is a bi-weekly film and discussion series that takes place every other Monday. Their goal is to grow a vibrant, creative community for Boston’s filmmakers, film students and film lovers through each of these special events.
