The Woke Coach moderated a session examining how filmmakers of privilege can successfully move from being “allies to accomplices.” The teams from two 2019 films, Where the Pavement Ends and Mossville: When Great Trees Fall, discussed their experiences documenting stories in which the films’ directors are from different backgrounds than the characters in their films. How can filmmakers go beyond saying that they want to be helpful to colleagues of color and actually make change?
