Documentary as a form of story telling is something I only learned gradually as I realised the importance of watching, not only making, films. While finding your own
documentary filmmaking voice is a fascinating and sometimes difficult process, there are so many others to be challenged by or become engrossed in.


Documentary is a survivor and its coming back more and more- after all recording reality was the first form of filmmaking .Documentry will always be a fascination for me - a process of drawing from an unlimited source of stories.
