A weekend TV-programming note: Check out The Hollywood Reporter's acclaimed roundtable series Sundays on SundanceTV.
THR gathered six non-fiction filmmakers — Ezra Edelman (O.J.: Made in America), Werner Herzog (Into the Inferno, Lo and Behold), Kirsten Johnson (Cameraperson), Josh Kriegman (Weiner), Raoul Peck (I Am Not Your Negro) and Roger Ross Williams (Life, Animated) — for a discussion about when to intercede in a scene, how much brutality to reveal on screen and why the diversity issue is "worse" in the doc world.
Viewers can watch THR's roundtable discussions on SundanceTV as part of the cable channel's original nonfiction series, Close Up With The Hollywood Reporter, produced in partnership with THR. Come back to THR.com every Monday after the shows air for the full, uncensored discussions online.
