Realscreen is partnering with filmmaker and executive producer Chuck Braverman and his Westdoc Online video series, to bring his interviews with acclaimed documentarians and non-fiction content industry figures to its readership.

The latest episode features acclaimed documentarian David Sutherland (pictured), the director behind such classic vérité projects as The Farmer’s Wife (1998), Country Boys (2006), Kind-Hearted Woman (2013) and last year’s Marcos Doesn’t Live Here Anymore.

In this discussion, Sutherland and Braverman discuss the filmmaker’s approach to capturing the most candid moments in his filmography, the stories that still resonate for him, and why he views himself as a “portraitist” and not a journalist.

This, and all previous episodes of the Westdoc Online series, can be found at the official website.
