WATCHING THE PAIN OF OTHERS
Chloé Galibert-Lainé - 31 mins | France , 2019
In this deeply personal video diary, a young researcher tries to make sense of her fascination for the film "The Pain of Others" by Penny Lane. A deep dive into the discomforting world of YouTube and online conspiracies, that challenges traditional notions of what documentary cinema is, or should be.
"One of the best films ever made about watching a documentary" (David Schwartz, Chief Curator at the Museum of the Moving Image, New York)
