'Objectivity' with Elegance Bratton (PIER KIDS)
Nonfiction filmmakers often end up with a lot more material than they could ever use. That's something Elegance Bratton ran into making his debut feature, Pier Kids . The film portrays life in New York for gay and transgender youth living on the Christopher Street Pier. Producing the film involved capturing all kinds of people’s stories over the course of many years in order to portray Bratton’s own experiences with homelessness. Bratton spoke with True/False programmer Amir George.
