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 these two episodes, exploring two acclaimed documentary shorts, Braverman talks to directors Jamie Meltzer and Chris Filippone about their short, Huntsville Station (pictured), which captures the first moments of freedom over a nine-day period for just-released inmates from Huntsville State Penitentiary, as they are dropped off at the local Greyhound bus station.
The short has screened at the Berlinale, SXSW and Hot Docs among many other festivals.
In another new episode, Braverman talks to Andrew Rossi (Page One: Inside the New York Times) and Kate Novack (The Gospel According to Andre) about their short for The New York Times Op-Docs series, Hysterical Girl. Directed by Novack and produced by Rossi, the doc (recently named as part of the Academy’s shortlist of short docs in contention for Oscar nominations) explores the case of Dora, a patient of Sigmund Freud that he diagnosed with ‘hysteria’, through a feminist perspective.
