Social Justic in Film
Thank you for this very thoughtful and insightful interview with filmmaker and impact producer Michael Kuehnert. I really appreciate Michael's message which is about creating media that changes minds and inspires people into action. Documentary films, though very informative in content, can at times leave the audience feeling despondent and hopeless. Encouraging documentary filmmakers to create media that not only informs and opens eyes, but also open the hearts and minds of the audience and offers them a toolkit that activates their will to do something, is key. Aspiring documentary filmmakers will benefit immensely by listening to this podcast.
I love this podcast!
