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.

In this episode, Braverman talks to Garrett Bradley about her first feature doc, Time, currently available via Amazon Prime. The film captures in a non-linear fashion the story of Fox Rich, a woman fighting for the release of her incarcerated husband while raising six boys. The end result garnered Bradley the best director award in the U.S. documentary competition at Sundance, and scores of rave reviews following its premiere at the Park City fest.

Here, Bradley discusses how she incorporated nearly 20 years worth of home video into the present-day footage she shot to weave the story together, as well as the other artistic choices she made in crafting the doc, which was acquired by Amazon Studios for a reported price tag of US$5 million in February.
