Description

How do you make a historical documentary without any obvious archival materials? Director Bill Lichtenstein and his team turned to the public to create the first "open source" documentary.

In this panel, Bill and his team will address the issues involved in going from idea to finished film: Finding, digitizing, restoring, and organizing vast quantities of 50-year old materials, as well as the legal issues that can arise when going open source.
