MKE Film Festival

SUBJECT turns the documentary gaze upon its own form, asking audiences to consider the ethical implications of the experiences of those whose real lives are shared on screen and, in turn, unalterably changed by this experience. Featuring commentary from influential names in the documentary world and central participants from acclaimed documentaries THE STAIRCASE, HOOP DREAMS, THE WOLFPACK and more, subjects reveal the highs and lows of their participation. This is a must-see for any doc-head.
