On Monday, Courtney Marsh sat down alongside fellow filmmaker Vanessa Block (director, The Testimony) for a discussion led by Ondi Timoner, an Award-Winning filmmaker known for DIG!, We Live in Public, and Brand: A Second Coming. She is also the host and Producer of BYOD: Bring Your Own Doc, a show that each week explores a different documentary filmmaker or aspect of filmmaking, with special guests and a live Q&A– diving deep into creative process and the business realities of producing and distributing films. Ondi shares her insider views, opinions, and personal stories, welcoming audience participation.
Ondi Timoner invited two selected documentary shorts currently on the Oscar short list - The Testimony & Chau, beyond the lines - to participate. Chau, beyond the lines follows a Chau, a teenager living in a Vietnamese care center for children effected by Agent Orange as battles with the reality of his dream to one day become a professional artist. The Testimony chronicles the largest rape trial in Congo's history, offering an unprecedented glimpse into the lives of its women and the unshakable strength of the human spirit.
We are very honored to be a part of this show.
