THE GREAT BUSTER: A CELEBRATION
MOMENTS OF TRUTH
by Chuck Workman
We start DocuFest with an inspirational film that evocatively explores the history of the documentary
MOMENTS OF TRUTH shows moments from over 100 classic documentaries in nine and a half minutes using brief revealing clips. The documentary clips are accompanied by short interviews with significant filmmakers like Ken Burns, Barbara Kopple, Werner Herzog, John Grierson, Michael Moore and others, edited with music from documentaries and quotations. Many of the films may not be instantly recognized or even well known, but the overall intent is to show the impact of this increasingly significant cinematic genre from decades ago to the present.
