    Filmmaker Pamela Yates finds out she got a scene in her film When the Mountains Tremble wrong, and returns to Guatemala to investigate. Jump to the post en Español » As the documentary film genres grow, and nonfiction filmmaking is scrutinized, filmmakers are faced with more and more complex ethical challenges.

    When organizing a classic trip to France, most itineraries highlight the nation’s renowned food and wines, great art and architecture and celebrated culture of all kinds. But there’s another side to this popular destination that is not as visible, its wild side. Deep in the French countryside, it is possible for the adventurous to spot brown bears, wild boar, griffon vultures or wolves. These are among the creatures getting the chance and space to regain their old hunting grounds in France’s many mountains, valleys and forests. Wild France features striking photography and locations all…
  • Interview with Bloody Suckers producer Marc Ferns

    Eric R. Olson
    12 Dec 2014 | 8:57 am
    Mark Ferns, the producer and presenter of NATURE’s BLOODY SUCKERS, believes in first-hand experience. While making the film, he decided the best way to inform and entertain viewers was to become a victim of bloodsuckers himself. “I wanted the best footage possible of these animals feeding,” he says. “And the best way I could think of getting it was to use myself as a subject.” So Ferns allowed himself to be bitten, and his blood lapped, by everything from the large chipo bug to the vampire bat. He recently shared some thoughts on his “draining”…
  • The Killer Whale’s Killer Weapon — Its Brain

    26 Nov 2014 | 8:23 am
    Contrary to the friendly depictions offered up by ocean theme parks, the killer whale (also known as the orca or blackfish), is the most devastating predator to roam the open oceans. It can weigh up to 11 tons, hit top speeds of 30 miles (48 kilometers) per hour and sports a mouth full of three-inch long interlocking teeth. In addition to these more obvious physical adaptations, the orca’s big brain–the second largest among ocean mammals–endows it with an intelligence unparalleled in an animal of its size. To get a rough measure of animal smarts, scientists look at something…

    A shift of power is taking place at the top of the world. The Arctic is undergoing a dramatic change, and with this change one iconic Arctic hunter may soon have to give way to another as solid ice turns to open sea. The polar bear, once king of the North, needs ice to stalk its prey. Killer whales, or orca, on the other hand, are unable to hunt in an ocean locked in ice. As the ice increasingly disappears, the tables have turned. Polar bears are struggling to survive while the now open ocean provides bountiful new hunting grounds for the whales.

  • With ‘Life Itself,’ Steve James Has Earned the Right to Oscar

    16 Dec 2014 | 11:57 am
    Steve James, director of Life Itself, a documentary on the shortlist for an Academy Award nomination. Two of his previous films, Hoop Dreams and The Interrupters, were famously snubbed. (Photo: Magnolia Pictures) Documentary and the underdog just go together. Nonfiction filmmaking tends to champion the guy or gal who needs it the most — the falsely imprisoned, the poor, the abused, even our depleted ozone. And as a career choice that provides little promise of remuneration, the doc filmmaker knows what it’s like to be the one with the short straw — underpaid and under…
