TRIBECA TALKS: PEN TO PAPER HOSTED BY BARNES & NOBLE UNION SQUARE -- WRITING THE DOCUMENTARY

Whether you're following the story of a little league team struggling to win a championship or diving into the story of how the television was invented, the term "writing the documentary" might not occur to you as you watch the drama unfold before your eyes. What most people don't realize is that documentaries also begin with the blank page and an idea. Join David Gelb, director of Jiro Dreams of Sushi, Maria Ramström, director of Love Always, Carolyn, Mila Turajlic, director of Cinema Komunisto, and others for a discussion about how that idea is turned into a narrative. Moderated by The Hollywood Reporter's David Rooney.
