Which documentary filmmakers do you most admire? For me, it's probably Alex Gibney. He's not afraid to tackle tough topics, like religion, and he doesn't try to insert himself into the story. Who's yours?
I'm not sure. I've seen many wonderful documentary films, but I couldn't tell you who created them. I guess that's the best way to do it, though. Unless the creator has personal experience with the subject, I believe they should remain in the background.
