WHOSE STORY IS IT? A QUESTION OF REPRESENTATION, RESPONSIBILITY AND AUTHORSHIP
David Fedele's films are best described as "cinematic journalism". He strives to reveal an unfiltered view of the world as he sees it, while searching for some sort of "truth" ... a word that is impossible to define, and a concept that ultimately does not exist.
As technology advances at a rapid rate, the boundary between filmmaker and protagonist is becoming increasingly blurred, forcing filmmakers to challenge and question themselves, and become ethically rigorous in ways like never before.
We live in a world where we are bombarded with images, stories and information that attempt to tell us what's going on around us, forcing us to push boundaries to discover and invent new, fresh and creative ways to tell stories in order to cut through this "noise".
So what is the most responsible way to tell these stories? Whose stories are we telling, how and why are we telling them, and what gives us this right?
