Episode 4. The Documentarian.

Genevieve Bailey – The director of multi-award winning documentary feature I Am Eleven (following 11-year-old kids around the world) and several documentary and fictional shorts, tells how shooting short films of her dog as a kid got her started, and about how being an independent filmmaker means that “50% of my job is making the film, and 50% is making sure people see the film.”
