Filmmakers Chistina Ibarra, Frances Negrón-Muntaner, and Ela Troyano reveal the stories behind favorite unseen excerpts from their documentary films. The outtake is center stage as these award-winning filmmakers discuss and screen treasured clips reluctantly cut from recent projects. The evening will be a dialogue about the creative, technical, legal, and structural elements that shape the representation of reality.
