Frederick Wiseman said that “One works from social actuality but necessarily imposes form upon that actuality, turning it into what may be implied by the terms art of fiction."
With the words "documentary" and "narrative" becoming increasingly benign, and fairly young genres such as "docu-fiction" and "hybrid documentary" becoming increasingly exhausted, The Line Blurs tackles the question of whether the division between "documentary" and "narrative" has ever actually existed and why films continue to be shoved into these critic-friendly categories, featuring a who's who from both sides of the genre scale.
Panelists include Josephine Decker, Keith Miller, Lynne Sachs, Caveh Zahedi, and Nathan Silver as Moderator
