Join DOC NYC PRO for a 90-minute panel about perfecting the documentary interview. Guests include Judith Helfand (Love & Stuff); Jeff Orlowski (The Social Dilemma); and Lauren Stowell (Tiger Woods: America’s Son). In a conversation moderated by DOC NYC’s Opal H.

The panel discussion will include a 30-minute moderated Q&A.
