by Stephen Becker 12 Mar 2015 8:20 AM

BIG SCREEN LOGO FOR POSTWith Gimmie Shelter, Albert Maysles set the standard by which all future concert documentaries would be judged. And with his brother, David, he championed the concept of Direct Cinema. Albert died last week at the age of 88. This week, we talk about his contributions to the world of film with a man who knew him well, VideoFest artistic director Bart Weiss.
