Chris Hegedus, D A Pennebaker, and longtime producer Frazer Pennebaker form one of the most respected and unique teams of documentary filmmakers working today. Known for their unobtrusive, cinema-verite style of filmmaking, they follow their subjects using handheld cameras and available light. What they achieve is a candid portrait of real-life drama in which the characters determine the action. Their subject matter ranges from politics to music, and includes The War Room, Monterey Pop, Dont Look Back, and Kings of Pastry to name just a few. Hegedus’ film Startup.com won her the 2002 DGA Award for Outstanding Directional Achievement. In 2013 The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences recognized D A Pennebaker’s body of work with an Oscar for Lifetime Achievement. Frazer Pennebaker, their producer/executive producer, has expanded their focus into live webcasts, beginning with the National’s YouTube concert at the Brooklyn Academy of Music. Most recently, the team has released a new edition of THE WAR ROOM through the Criterion Collection.
