Why We Love Her
In an age of sound bytes and cheap outrage, Laura Poitras takes her time, crafting potent, unforgettable, necessary documentaries that challenge us to look beyond our preconceptions. FLAG WARS (gentrification), THE OATH (the U.S.’s role in radicalizing the Middle East), CITIZENFOUR (U.S. secrecy), and now ALL THE BEAUTY AND BLOODSHED (art, activism and Big Pharma): each one is a masterwork in long-form journalism.
-Jason Silverman, co-Executive Director
