Though conducted over Zoom instead of in person, I found this interview extremely insightful and inspiring. I’m very interested in documentary as a medium and how the practicality of filmmaking ties in with the ethicality of the stories being told. Speaking to one of the leading names in Australian documentary felt like a privilege to say the least, and Natasha offered me with some amazing words and advice that I couldn’t fit in such a small package.
