How have documentaries changed our conception of politics? Throughout its illustrious history POV has been committed to dissecting political issues and illuminating the electoral process. At the Paley Center for Media, filmmakers Marshall Curry, Shola Lynch, Laura Poitras and Marco Williams, along with critic Caryn James, discussed how to cover the politcal system and gain access to it.
