An essential new collection, The Documentary Makers brings together filmmakers from four corners of the globe to reveal the process and passion behind their work. Hailing from the USA, Denmark, Chile, the UK, India, Canada, China, and Cameroon, the 15 featured here have continued to both define and push the boundaries of the documentary tradition, and are undoubtedly among the most important filmmakers alive today.
